American Friends are invited to join us for a visit to Sun Rain Room, a RIBA Award-winning project, which is a two-storey extension and restoration of a Grade-II Listed Georgian townhouse on Wednesday 17 January 2018. Designed and constructed by Tonkin Liu in collaboration with local craftspeople, it serves as both a studio for the practice and a home for the partners’ family. An innovative plywood roof forms a canopy over internal and external living and meeting spaces, which cradle a rainwater-filled reflecting pool. It is a place to enjoy changing weather, seasons and times of day. We will visit the Sun Rain Rooms in the evening for the best experience.
