It was nice to read The Modern House’s conversation with The Yard House owners Tracy and Steve Fox.

Steve: “I remember giving Jonathan a really bad sketch of what we envisioned. He talked to us about things we liked – sheds, agricultural buildings, a brutalist aesthetic that wasn’t necessarily minimalist – and in response he showed us an extension of a studio in King’s Cross he had done using polycarbonate panels.”

Tracy: “I remember thinking it was so beautiful, and that we had to have some of it, somehow and somewhere in our home.

Steve: “Working with Jonathan was a great, exciting process and he got us to a point that we would never have got to ourselves. Even if you think you can do visual stuff, it doesn’t compare to someone who can think in such a clever way about spatial arrangements and how materials will work together.”
