Ditton Hill House
Status: Complete 2019
Location: Surbiton, Surrey
Architects: Surman Weston Ltd
Structural Engineers: Structure Workshop
We have been commissioned to design a new build detached house in the London suburb of Surbiton, Surrey. Externally, the design references the local vernacular mock-Tudor houses, an elegant exposed structural steel frame is in-filled with a slurried masonry to form a simple monolithic building. The solidity and privacy of the road facing front elevation is juxtaposed by a more transparent garden-facing rear elevation. Internally, the house is planned as a series of interconnected ‘enfilade’ spaces, which create a generous sense of space whilst efficiently minimising circulation area.
The house is complete and due to be photographed in early 2020.
