Denizen Works House no 7

Denizen Works, founded by Bartlett alum Murray Kerr in 2011, has won Grand Designs Home of the Year 2014 for House no.7, a cottage on the Hebridean Isle of Tiree.

The original property was bought by Kerr’s parents, to whom he pitched his proposal to rebuild it. Kerr founded his practice on the basis of this commission. As well as receiving the Grand Designs award, the project has also been been shortlisted for both the Scottish Design Awards and a RIAS Award.

Kerr studied at The Bartlett in Unit 22 and 23 under Odile Decq and Liudmila and Vladislav Kirpichev, graduating in 2002.
