MawsonKerr Architects for Pender family

Contract value: £351,000

GIA: 274.00m²

A self-build or professionally procured house that is as immaculately constructed, sensitively conceived and has such heart and soul as this is rare.  Built by Richard Pender for his ageing parents, it feels connected to the history of the Pender family and the Northumbrian landscape. Constructed by Richard on site in an existing barn, the execution of this design is of the highest quality.

Dan Kerr retained a strong architectural concept while planning how Richard could build the Passivhaus structure himself and ensuring  the carefully considered needs of Mr and Mrs Pender were adequately accommodated. Shawm House  is a standout example of what is possible with clarity of thought and exceptional and focused deployment of an architect’s skills.
