When architects design their own home it’s an opportunity to push their boundaries and test their ideas. This house is the new family home of architect Tim Hill of Tandem Design Studio. Completed in 2016, it was a chance for Tim to experiment and innovate and to create a house that reflected and expressed his interests: how it contributes to the visual language of the neighbourhood, integrates pocket gardens, encourages different readings of meaning and minimises the environmental impact of its design. It also demonstrates how constraints spur creativity as the awkward block of land gives rise to a form that evokes a variety of imaginative descriptions.
