and Best Contemporary Home
Rising up from a former derelict, rubbish-laden site in London comes an impressive new home which brings together mid-century modern design and raw materials — all built around a century-old pear tree. To preserve the tree, the home had to be designed around it, resulting in the creation of an internal courtyard providing both privacy and light.
