Modern Mock-Tudor Home With Industrial Touches

Surman Weston has built a house in Surbiton, south-west London, with a facade that riffs off the mock-Tudor facades of the surrounding suburban homes. Named Ditton Hill House, the home was designed to combine the client’s desire for a contemporary house that had an industrial aesthetic with an acknowledgement of its location in a London suburb.
Built with an external steel frame, the most visible nod towards the neighboring mock-Tudor homes are the front and rear facades of the A-frame house. Surman Weston infilled the structural framing, which is arranged in a similar pattern to that found on mock-Tudor facades, with brick panels.
Within the home the steel frame allowed the studio to create large open spaces including a living and dining area that overlooks the garden through full-height windows. Surman Weston exposed the steel floor decks within the ground floor spaces and used steel-framed glazing as further nods to Tudor houses.
The home was built around a triple-height entrance hall that was created to express the industrial aesthetic running through the building. By combining the verticality you might expect from a warehouse with similarly industrial materials – steel, concrete, and exposed block-work – the hallway is clearly the most industrial space…
