This highly contextual extension responds to the principles of the ‘Garden City’, integrating home, garden and streetscape. In doing so, it continues the vision for the area laid out by the Housing Commission in the 1940s. Curious neighbours slow their cars. From between the trees across a vast nature strip, a fence-like shed with a cyclops eye peers back at them. ‘Whose world is this?’ they ask. This street-side pavilion is an artist’s studio; the window is her muse. It’s timber wall, garden-nestled, curves from the street. With it bends a path.
