It is a country house in Buckinghamshire, England which has received many praises for its clear intention and unyielding execution. Minimalistic yet modern, his aesthetics has been admired by many and it is the reason he rose to fame. The partnership with Ward and Colin Lucas was formed in 1933, which was then concluded in 1939. During the partnership, the trio produced a variety of projects, together and separately, some of which has received the RIBA Bronze Medal.
