Architect Alison Brooks reworked a derelict, detached, four-storey house into a family home with office space over six years. The design had to take into account an old walnut tree in the garden with a preservation order on it.
The most striking part of the interior is a new section of faceted glass at the rear. This gem-like structure inspired the name, Lens House, and is wrapped in Corian.

Tree House, by 6a Architects is an extension built for architecture critic Rowan Moore, whose wife needed better access for her wheelchair. The rooms look out to the garden along its length.
