Hayhurst and Co.,
Garden House is a home, studio and gallery under a 'hanging -basket' roof designed for and in association with Whitaker Malem: the artist & costume-maker duo behind works by Allen Jones, fashion designers Hussein Chalayan & Alexander McQueen and numerous film costumes including Batman, Captain America & Wonder Woman.
On the site of a single-storey workshop they converted in the mid 1990's, Whitaker & Malem wished to create a new home and studio which maximized the space and natural light available within their tight, north-facing site behind Victorian terraced housing in Hackney's de Beauvoir conservation area.
Completed in 2016 the result is a new prototype for inner-city, back-lot development creating dense and adaptable, urban living.
Garden House was selected by The Architects Journal for its top 10 houses of 2016 and also by Dezeen for their top 10 buildings of 2016.
Channel 4's House of the Year 2016- in association with RIBA- also featured the property which has received numerous commendations & press article's.
