The dragon


The Dragon

Background: A fanciful Victorian gatehouse building off Edge Hill in Wimbledon

Project brief: The owners of this extraordinary property wanted us to provide a fun building in the garden that their sons could “climb all over and play in” and that would have the “wow!” factor

The challenge: It was a tricky sloping site and the building emerges out of the landscape to meet a Victorian gatehouse.

The Malone vision: Keith described the building as “the dragon” when he presented his ideas to the family. The children were listening and he wanted to make the design story into a fairy tale, as their fanciful Victorian gatehouse property looks like it’s straight out of a Hans Christian Andersen storybook.
