MAN ABOUT THE KEW HOUSE
London Festival of Architecture (June 2017)
Following a sell out season in 2016, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to return to the UK as part of the London Festival of Architecture to perform their brand new show.
For the last four years they have taken temporary possession of Architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended storytelling, music and design in a mold breaking format that has seen them literally sell out houses across the globe.
Following rave reviews for the recent film series, Streets of Your Town, Tim and Kit welcome you to a host of unique properties around London.
“Must see show of the Festival.” New York Times.
“Had us in stitches.” Sunday Times (UK)
“With quick wit and telling anecdotes, Tim shares his passion for modern design and architecture — the fortunate audience is left both enlightened and entertained.” Wendy Kaplan Department Head and Curator Los Angeles County Museum of Art
With small capacities for each amazing location, tickets are extremely limited, book now to avoid missing out.
The show runs for one hour and 35 minutes with a short interval.
Kew House by Piercy&Company
Set within the Kew Green Conservation area of south-west London, this four bedroom family house is formed of two prefabricated weathering steel volumes inserted behind a retained nineteenth century stable wall.
The layout is informal; rich with incidental spaces and unexpected light sources. A delicate glazed circulation link reveals the contrast between a rustic exterior and refined interior. Split into two wings, the simple plan makes the most of a constrained site and responds to the living patterns of the young family.
Kew House was an experimental project, driven by the architect's and client's shared interest in a 'kit-of-parts' approach, prefabrication, and the self-build possibilities emerging from digital fabrication.
*** PLEASE NOTE: Exact address details will be available on the tickets once purchase, and sent again in an event reminder closer to the event date. ***
