Tim Lucas of Price & Myers explains how he threw the engineering and contracting rulebook out of the
window in building his own house in Kew, southwest London. He approaches the project from three different
points of view: as a structural engineer who designed the structure of his own new home; as a main contractor
who took the risks of building it; and finally as a client who wanted to commission a building that was both
respectful of Kew as a location and whose design approach to the architectural and engineering challenges of
the site was considered in an inventive way, from first principles.
