Private House

This project was inspired by the spirit of the Californian Case Study houses and the simplicity of Japanese domestic architecture.

This project was inspired by the spirit of the Californian Case Study houses and the simplicity of Japanese domestic architecture. The architect, Marcus Lee of FLACQ, had always had an interest in timberframed structures applied to small scale residential developments combined with an environmentally responsible approach to building. Some years ago Lee, with his partner, who works for Arup Associates, built a timber-framed house for his family in Highbury. This new house occupies a back garden plot in Hackney and was built with Lee acting as his own project manager.
