DescriptionSince launching his practice in 2001 with The Lawns, which was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize, Nick Eldridge has become renowned for his beautiful bespoke houses. This book provides a wide-ranging survey of his key projects up to the present day including the Manser Medal-winning house, Greenways in Coombe Park. Eldridge is an architectural storyteller: thoughtfully responding to different landscapes, settings, histories and clients, each house explores fresh narratives, while at the same time, being connected by strong threads to a cohesive body of work.
Throughout the book, from earliest projects to new work, including a beach house in Shoreham, a barn conversion in Cornwall and an innovative modern modular house in Devon, Eldridge's work explores and experiments: his houses feel fresh and different, lifted by an innovative approach to tectonic engineering and form fused with a passion for artisanal interiors, fine detailing and characterful materials. They show the architect's varied influences: from Arts & Crafts and mid-century modern through to hi-tech design - Eldridge spent six years with Norman Foster.
The projects analysed in the book are broadly divided into two main sections: new build projects, and highly imaginative, responsive adaptations, extensions and reinventions of existing buildings.
