The two new family houses have been designed as symmetrical, yet visually independent villas within the verdant setting of a private south London estate. 

The simple contemporary architectural language of the street façade, with its white stone and dark timber, implies an architecture of mass and enclosure. However, this belies the sense of connection that is apparent when moving through the three-storey house, where the volume is carved-out to create a transparent matrix of living spaces.

The main living area sits between the landscaped gardens and an open glazed courtyard, that acts as the fulcrum around which the house is organized, connecting all levels and bringing the landscape and sunlight into the heart of the house.
