A Unique Architectural Statement
The Ghost House was granted permission under the National Planning Policy Paragraph 55 as the proposal achieved the required standard as an exemplar piece of architecture.
Despite only being completed in December 2018, the house has already gained a great deal of acclaim & plaudits across the globe. It won a 2019 RIBA award; as well as feature on the front cover of the prestigious RIBA Journal. It was shortlisted for the 2019 Grand Designs House of the Year Show. It was chosen by the highly influential design & architecture powerhouse Dezeen as one of the top ten houses of 2019 worldwide. It has also just been chosen to feature in an exhibition held at the Chicago Museum of Architecture as a house which helps redefine architecture for the 21st Century.
The house sits on a sloping site, & only a glimpse of the property is seen from the driveway. The upper floor radiates an ethereal light & reflects into the black ink pools at ground level. The entrance leads between the pools & down a central concrete staircase into a subterranean courtyard, which pulls you to the 3m high black steel front door.
The property was built from a very limited palette of poured in-situ concrete, matte black steel & glass. Light radiates throughout, & the composition of the concrete gives the house a warm glow in both inside & out.
Ceiling height is 3m throughout, which gives a stunning feeling of space and freedom. All lighting is recessed within the concrete structure & adds to the drama of the space in the evening.
Whilst extending to approximately 5,500sq ft, the house certainly feels like a home, albeit a truly unique one.

Rarely have I had the chance to market such an inspiring home. The first time I saw the main elevation was truly breathtaking.Nick Rudge
