Walmer Yard is a discreet and private set of four interlocking houses set around a courtyard. This building, designed and crafted by Peter Salter together with Fenella Collingridge, and developed by Crispin Kelly, is the reflection of a long education and the product of a decade of learning, thought and inspiration. From the play of light, shadow and colour, to the intense celebration of materials and constantly fresh sequences of spaces, the houses celebrate what architecture can deliver at the domestic scale. Join us for a unique tour of the homes and courtyard space which are not normally open to the public. During these we discuss the ideas, materials and craft that went in to the construction of these unusual houses.
