London, Great Britain
- Tonkin Liu
A steel structure grows out of the empty rooftop of a Victorian warehouse in Central London. The frame is overgrown with climbing plants, whose fragrance wafts gently through the naturally ventilated facade. Covered in a fine white mesh, the house is a glowing green beacon on the London skyline.
Inside the steel frame hangs a tall room that watches over the day-to-day life of the city. The outdoor spaces of the six-bedroom home maximise the potentials of the site and provide a place for the family to grow. As we green the city it becomes a place for more families to settle and flourish.
