Situated in London, UK, Pear Tree House (2012) by Edgley Design | The Hardt
Situated in London, UK, Pear Tree House (2012) by Edgley Design. The concept began with a 100-year-old pear tree, a remnant of the site’s history as a Victorian fruit orchard. The house has been built around the tree, creating an internal courtyard that brings light and air to the center of the plan, while turning the house inward to remain private from the surrounding terraced houses. The site is long and thin, and the layout is arranged around the changing light of the day, with the kitchen looking to the northeast for morning light, the living areas looking southwest onto the pear tree courtyard for light from midday, and the lowered snug in the centre of the building as a cosy retreat in the evening.
