GRAY HOUSE

Gray House is 2 residences expressed as a single house. It is a 21st century interpretation of ‘house-ness’ epitomized by the 1920s Arts + Crafts houses typical of this area.

The most outstanding feature of these houses are their roofs - spectacularly huge and heavy roof ‘mountains’ – carrying with them rich associations of warmth, protection, private retreat and a quality of ‘house-ness’ rarely achieved by other periods of housing. The upper storey is designed as a large roof or ‘inhabited attic’ type element over a low and heavy base with windows and balconies recessed into the roof and peeping out under roof ‘flaps’ typical of these ‘attic villas’
