The Christmas Project is our latest collaboration with London based Developer, Findlay Fraher.
This new build six unit scheme looks to establish a new type of Christmas House, that refers to the immediate context of turn of the century architecture. Christmas Houses were built by Ted Christmas, a local developer in South East London, who sought to introduce the Arts and Crafts details to an affordable semi-detached housing solution.
The proposed architecture presents a detailed replication of the qualities that inspired Ted Christmas to the front elevation. Once the facade turns the corner, the building details become abstracted, introducing contemporary details with strong references to the surrounding context. We have focused particular attention to the form of the bay window, glazing and material approach.
