This house was built for a young family, prosperous and successful, whose ideas of the ideal house were expressed in these lines. From the great variety of what they have seen and admired in architecture all over the world, their eyes and memories have captured distinctive details and proportions, character and mood, materials and images which have now become part of their daily life, the projection of precious words and meanings in a project bearing witness to classicism.

All the joinery work — the kitchen, the cupboards, wardrobes and wall panels — is based on bespoke designs, with carefully drawn detailing, which, because each detail is absolutely right, make the house impressive and unique.
