The renders here show the main living area of the house at the first floor - one looks to the deck; the other to the lightwell. The model shows the external form.
The full documentation set for the building went out to tender in the first half of 2014. The tender process was exhaustive. The client included high-end builders through to an owner-build option - a process that uncovered the immense difference in construction costs between the builders (who build many of the architect-designed houses that we see published) and the sum of the quotes received from individual sub-contractors and trades. The highest quote from the builders was almost 3 times that of the owner-build option.
The project is now on hold until one of the clients returns to work from paternity leave. I'd love to see it built.
Simon Hubert built the computer model and helped with the early stages of the documentation set.
