Three courtyard houses situated in the rural Thames-side village of Petersham in Richmond for the top end of the housing market

The design concept creates three individual family homes that form part of an architectural grouping while remaining private. Each house is conceived as a linear arrangement of rooms comprising dining room, kitchen, study and bedrooms accessed from a double-height gallery that runs the length of the house.

The architectural language for the building consists of a range of materials, which with the building form creating a contemporary classic modern profile and a scheme of the highest architectural quality.
