It’s an old cliché to say that architects would rather have their houses empty of furniture (and possibly even people) so that their perfectly proportioned masterpieces can speak for themselves, unsullied by the grubby belongings of their client. But with this new London house by drdh (via Arch Daily), I can kinda see their point. The detailing is just poetry, really: beautiful Douglas fir joinery, an unbroken shell of snow-white Corian in the kitchen, raw concrete and exposed brickwork everywhere else. The knowledge that this is a listed building that had been extended in a very ad-hoc way in its past just makes the achievement of such a coherent space all the more remarkable. The client is an artist, apparently: all I can say is, they’d better not have too much stuff.
