The Tailored House
The brief called for a variety of spaces, offering expansive settings for gathering, and inviting inner sanctums for moments of solitude or contemplation. This was all to be set within a house of sufficient stature and repose to address the massive mid-Victorian townhouses on all sides.
The architects Liddicoat & Goldhill have named it The Tailored House:
“The clients drew an analogy between their new house and a tailored suit – recognisable, elegant and simple when viewed as a whole, but revealing individuality and material opulence in detail.”
