2020 Ditton Hill
A new build detached house in Surbiton, Surrey, with design references to the local mock-Tudor houses. The house has an exposed external steel frame infilled with brick masonry and a slurry finish to create a simple monolithic form to the front and side elevations.

At the rear of the building, full height glazing stretches the building's width at ground floor with a cantilevering steel frame balcony, infilled with perforated brickwork above. Such design moves were achieved by spanning steel trusses the width of the building. The external frame is thermally broken from the internal frame to prevent cold bridging issues relating to the exposed framing. Internally, a paired back approach was adopted with both the steel beams and the profile deck exposed on both the ground and first floors.
