Part-restoration, part-adaptation of a 1960s two-storey Brutalist house
Originally designed by husband and wife architects Douglas and Margaret Stirling Craig in 1967, it was saved by Graham Stirk (RSH&P) and Susie Le Good (AHMM), who in turn invited Joe Morris and Mary Duggan to curate a programme of works based on retention, renovation and intervention.
Although the layout was generally retained, the bold move of removing the supporting cross walls and replacing with a steel beam and column support leaves a flexible living arrangement that fully utilises the south facing glazed facade.
