RIBA Architecture Award

RIBA LONDON AWARD WINNER 2017

Walmer Yard is the first residential scheme in Britain by architectural designer and teacher, Peter Salter. Commissioned by developer Crispin Kelly and seven years in the making, the project consists of four individual, interlocking houses on the site of a former industrial building in Holland Park. Cast from in-situ concrete and structured around an elliptical stairwell; each of the houses sits around an intimate timber lined courtyard which is perceived as an interior room and raised from the street, above a basement parking level.

First look: Peter Salter’s ‘sensual, sexy’ private houses in Holland Park

Peter Salter’s four exquisitely crafted houses in Holland Park have taken 13 years to build — but they have been worth the wait.

Peter Salter has built a considerable reputation as a professor of architecture but he has had to wait until the age of almost 70 to complete his first UK project. Rarely has a building been so anticipated by the architectural community as his Walmer Yard scheme. And it’s not even a public building but four tower-like private houses jigsawed onto a tiny site in a Holland Park sidestreet. So crafted and bespoke are these houses that they have been 13 years in the making, from the start of design work in 2003 to completion this year.

Property of the week: Peter Salter’s interlocking Walmer Yard homes

A radical take on ‘close living’ – yours for £22m

Walmer Yard sits on a leafy street in London’s Holland Park, bookended by a restored 19th-century kiln – a reminder of the area’s history of clay pits – and prosaic glass and steel offices where the sitcom Absolutely Fabulous was filmed. Its restrained façade is a response to the three-storey neighbouring terraced houses, but this is a foil to the architecture that lies behind.

Fantastic four: Peter Salter’s houses is a work of poetry
