The Anderson House was inserted into a void hidden within a residential block in Fitzrovia, in Central London. Enclosed on all sides by eight metre-high party walls and with limited access, the site presented a great design challenge. In defiance of its windowless perimeter, light was treated as a material around which the house was formed. The main living space took the maximum volume the site could afford.
In 2003, the Anderson House won the Manser Medal, awarded by the RIBA for the best one-off house designed by an architect in the UK
