‘A Victorian wreck transformed into a wonderful place to live and work, it is dramatic, light and welcoming, practical and well considered at every level. From the garden the extension resemble an object from another planet, with innovative use of Corian cladding emphasising a crystalline appearance. The geometry is a complex series of trapezoidal planes. While modest in size, the project is highly ambitious in its design intention and is beautifully conceived and executed.’
Alex Warnock-Smith was project architect of Lens House for Alison Brooks Architects.
