This translucent glass house by Carl Turner is mostly constructed of glass, steel and concrete. I appreciate the aesthetic disruption that this house creates in its neighborhood. The monochromatic interiors are an interesting choice but I think they compliment the exterior quite well. I have never really been fond of light wood but this goes beyond blonde. The house currently doubles as a studio as well.

Slip House, designed by the renowned architect Carl Turner as his own home, is one of London’s most celebrated recent buildings. Awarded the prestigious RIBA Manser Medal (given to the best house in the UK) in 2013, it was described by the judges as an “exemplary low-energy home… [with] refined quality of spaces”. Houses of such distinction are rarely constructed in the capital, and it is surely destined to enjoy a privileged place in the architectural history of the city.
