Trojan House by Jackson Clements Burrows:

This alterations and additions project is about a house that engages with childhood in a playful way. The design reconciles the programmatic requirements of a growing family with an unexpected sculptural response. The client liked the notion of a Trojan House as a metaphor for the chaos of family life that occurred within the house. All is revealed once the children are unleashed into the back garden onto the unsuspecting residents of the neighbouring flats, trying to enjoy their Sunday morning sleep-in.
