Hoe woont de architect zelf?

Pawson House
Londen - Engeland
Architect: John Pawson - Londen.

John Pawson's own house is a study in how domestic architecture can be designed around the rituals of everyday life. While planning regulations prohibited alterations to the front of this traditional nineteenth century house in west London, Pawson stripped out the existing interior and sliced open the rear elevation. The conventional facade gives only a tantalising glimpse of the new life which has been flipped into the frame of the old.
At the top of the house a glazed slot running the length of the ceiling allows daylight to spill down through the triple-height stairwell, whilst the glass ceiling of the sky shower slides away to permit bathing under the sun or the stars. In places the threshold between inside and out is minimized to the point that it all but disappears.
