House in Colchester (1978)

Architect’s Statement
Bryan Thomas trained at the Architectural Association 1945-1950, and worked with David Stern and later with Wells Coates and his partner Michael Lyell in London. In 1957 he set up his own practice in Colchester, Essex, producing a number of houses locally, many of which he has since revisited to extend and upgrade for the 21st century. Perhaps Thomas’ most iconic house is the House on the Heath, built in 1974, and in 1960 he designed and built the Chatto House for British gardener Beth Chatto. Thomas has built houses both for himself and his family. His most recent project in Alresford, Essex, completed in 2006, and in 2013 he received a commendation in the Sunday Times’ British Homes Award.

Architect’s Statement
Ström Architects is a small boutique practice specialising in private residential work, both in the UK and abroad. The practice is influenced by Swedish Functionalism, which is born out of a belief in humanism, tradition, moderation, handcrafted perfectionism, modesty, quietude and purposefulness. We strive to create buildings that do not shout, but come across as understated, powerful and soulful. We approach each commission as a unique task, leading to tailored and personalised architectural solutions. In 2012, we featured as the UK representative for Wallpaper Magazine’s directory of emerging architectural talent from around the world.
