Previously on the site of this house in Petersham village, stood a modernist house designed by Leonard Manassen in 1967 for the Carr Jones family which was noted in the RIBA archives for its cutting-edge design. Unfortunately, the material technology available at the time was not as advanced as the design aesthetic, and the house was sadly demolished. In 2004 Sir Terry Farrell designed the current house which reflects the contemporary principles and emphasises the inside outside flow from the house to the beautiful site, adjacent to the Richmond stretch of the river Thames.
Our brief was to make subtle interventions to the Farrell house, while retaining the integrity of the design. These include a new kitchen, a stunning suspended wine room, carport with raised bed roof garden, outdoor kitchen with pizza oven and a wrap-around hardwood brise soleil.
