Horden Cherry Lee completes houses with electricity-generating facades

Horden Cherry Lee - pair of mews houses in Fulham with energy-generating facades

Mews houses are one of co-founder’s final projects

One of Richard Horden’s last projects, a pair of unusual sustainable mews houses, has been completed, just weeks after his death.

The co-founder of Horden Cherry Lee died in October aged 73. He began his career with a 10-year stint at Foster’s where he worked on the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and Stansted Airport.

The three-storey sedum-roofed houses in Fulham, west London, are said to have been inspired by the 1932 Maison de Verre in Paris because of the way they allow light to filter into the properties.
