“This is a house that can’t be ignored… A fantastically brave and well executed ‘grand project’ of domestic architecture!”
Manser Medal Jury

“The Lawns is a very disciplined and exciting house and is an exemplar of how the 21st century house can be incorporated into historic conservation areas as part of the continuing evolution of domestic architecture.”
RIBA Stirling Prize Jury

“A sexy, impeccably detailed jewel, shimmering in an otherworldly light; it is so perfect, so neat… it’s one of the most important houses built in Britain for decades.”
Tom Dyckhoff – The Guardian

“Highgate has been a place where interesting and pioneering one-off houses have been built by and for designers. This latest one takes that tradition to a new generation with verve and panache”
John Winter – RIBA Journal

“Already one of the architectural legends of the present”
Alan Powers – Country Life

“It is unbelievably difficult to achieve quality. Quality in design, in finish, in workmanship. Here it has been achieved and I am lost in admiration for the excellence of the building work and the thorough rigour of the design. This comes as near to a faultless building as I have seen for a long time.”
John Winter – Architecture Today

“Eldridge [London]’s latest addition is one of the finest contemporary houses in London”
Matt Gibberd – World of Interiors

“It is refreshing that that Epsom & Ewell planners were receptive to the idea of a modern house…suggesting ‘that this was potentially a listed building of the future’. The patronage of domestic architecture rarely allows for an evolution in house forms, but Deodar’s integration of low- energy technology, craftsmanship and functionality would be exceptional in any location.”
Lucy Bullivant – Architecture Today

One of ”10 architect provocateurs who are shaking things up with bold, innovative designs”
