This project is the first completed by Lacey & Saltykov. Tom and Andrei started collaborating on its design in 2009. Following the project’s near completion in 2011 they decided to formally establish their practice together.

Explaining their inspiration, the architects said: “We see the houses as being like boats, with living areas floating above the gardens at sea level. The living spaces are like elevated decks, with views out towards Wimbledon Park, while the main sleeping areas are large cabins below deck.”
