    SLIM HOUSE ON ARTHUR ROAD

    A house with the unassuming name, 84 Arthur Road, has introduced an element of drama to an otherwise sleepy suburb of southwest London. The design by Wimbledon-based architect Terry Pawson illustrates a brave and adventurous use of space on a narrow and restrictive site, scarcely one room wide. Next week ArchitectureWeek contributing editor Don Barker will explain how Pawson's clever use of the interior space belies the restricted nature of the site.

The dome shape means structural and functional efficiency, and the rotation allows the houses to either to seek or avoid solar heat, depending on the season. Next week Toronto-based writer Albert Warson will describe how these structures are built and how they function.
