6 WOOD LANE

Drawing upon the context of eccentric villas that line the southern edge of Wood Lane the new house juxtaposes an orthogonal piano-nobile with an elliptical ark hovering above. The ramped footbridge signals the departure from the prosaic world and the commencement of an extraordinary journey across a metaphorical seascape. The entrance hall is articulated as a rippling shoreline and a lighthouse marks embarking the stepped gangway into the dramatic double height ark. At its prow a projecting balcony views the scurrying world below. An open flight of stairs leads to a gallery beside the stern deck with its charcoal grill and totemic bay tree. Beyond the teak ramp ascends to the circular winter garden floating beneath the jewel like observatory giving vertiginous views over the garden and world beyond.
