Abstract:
The Sugden House is consistently committed to the idea of functionalism in its direct, natural and honest take on materiality and construction, while the Mother& rsquo;s House is mostly ambiguous, inclusive and is made up of residual spaces and detached skins. In urban planning terms, the Sugden House represents a new order to the city, one that sensitively rose from a deep understanding of family and community needs, whereas the Mother's House represents an acceptance of suburbia and its noisy tendencies, a non-judgemental acceptance of 'what people' want.
