This is a great example of an architect (a previous winner of the Stephen Lawrence prize with his black rubber house at Dungeness) taking a client brief, a tight site and an even tighter budget and creating an architecturally rich and uplifting house.

Single storeyed, timber framed and built around a series of courtyards and outdoor spaces, the basic pallet of materials is used with great care so that the house feels anything but cheap. A delightful house on a difficult site; the clients’ first decision – the choice of architect – was the right one. They were in good company: Jacques Herzog recently chose Simon Conder as the only British architect to work with his practice on a major housing scheme in China.
