Inserted into a void within the centre of a residential block, this unusual house is enclosed on all sides by 7m-high party walls. The works required 26 separate party wall agreements, 60 party wall notices and 8 party wall surveyors.

As the house could not rely on party walls, the majority of the load is carried on a central pile cap from which a central concrete structure rises to form the principal walls of the interior, stairs and ceiling of the first floor. The structure, walls and finishes are of exposed concrete.

The Manser Medal
This is awarded to the best architect designed house in the UK. Speaking at the awards dinner, Michael Manser said:
““...What was formerly an inaccessible, valueless hole in the ground now has considerable real estate value and is an iconic, comfortable and elegant architectural pad in a classy part of London. It takes your breath away and now it is done, seems so simple and so obvious.”
