Bespoke project will deliver new home for paralysed artist

Knox Bhavan Architects has secured planning consent to replace a 1950s house in rural Hertfordshire with a bespoke home for an artist and public speaker who is paralysed from the shoulders down.

The practice’s proposal for client Henry Fraser is a “T” shaped property that immediately sends client visitors to studio space on one side of the property, while friends and family are directed in the opposite direction.

Knox Bhavan said the studio designed for Fraser was a “lofty, sky-lit space” where he can paint, have meetings and receive clients for future commissions. It has roof lights, tilted upwards for privacy, providing even light into the studio.
