The Sliding House

Suffolk, UK – Ross Russell and Sally Morris

Consulting architect: Alex de Rijke

This home is unquestionably, one of the most innovative and demanding residential projects ever undertaken.  Concept to practical completion was a five year event.  Along the way, the home gained international recognition and many well deserved awards. What you see here is just a small part of the information available here.  It’s not an easy site to navigate, but if you have the time and the interest, we highly recommend it.
