Eidolon House, London, UK
Dominic McKenzie Architects
Believed to be the first mirror-clad home in London, Eidolon House sits on one of Highgate’s sloped streets, a stone’s throw from Highgate Cemetary. The design continues in the tradition for avant-garde architecture started by existing structures in the area, such as John Winter’s 1969 Corten steel clad house. Clad in mirror polished stainless steel the structure reflects the trees opposite it and amplifies the changing seasons, maintaining a fairly mysterious exterior with few (yet generous) openings, placed high up on its facade. Inside, woods, bright, open spaces and crisp white walls define the interior.
