Hallway, Kew House.

This brick wall was used to anchor the house to the site. Elsewhere lighter volumes are used to give the sense that the house is touching the earth lightly. This contrast between weightiness and floating forms creates a dynamic that adds interest to the house. The niches and the roughness of the brickwork also add a sense of permanence to the house.
