Edgley Design has designed Pear Tree House in South London. Edgley Design is a young, creative award winning RIBA Chartered architectural practice based in Hoxton, East London, set up by Jake Edgley in 2004.

Description by Edgley Design: The concept for this backland house began with a 100 year old pear tree, a remnant of the site’s history as a Victorian fruit orchard. The house has been built around this tree in two volumes, linked by a glass walkway.

The clients wanted to preserve the character of the site and evoke its history through the building. To this end there is a simple aesthetic concept to emphasis the vertical articulation of the building with views through the building defined by slender vertical elements which echo the experience of looking through trees.
