Architects can sniff out promising premises, they’re trained for it. Never more so than when it’s for their own use. Thus Henning Stummel found one of those London oases – an industrial workshop hidden through an arch off a busy street – and made it a home and studio for his practice inspired by that lightweight workshop’s structure. ‘It demonstrates that with enormous constraints a skilled architect can craft a building of significant architectural merit – it is clearly a building that is a joy to live and work in,’ said the envious judges.
