Michael Newberry was a prominent British architect who made a name for himself and rose in status when he designed the United Kingdom's first glass and steel house in a Surrey Village situated in Capel. He kick started this trendy combination and over the years, has influenced so many others to experiment with the two materials. At a young age of 27, Michael Newberry has already design a residential house called the 'Panshanger', which was a tasteful building created for his family. As stated by The Age in 1958, the building only had one internal door that led the inhabitants directly to the bathroom. He created his second steel and glass house in 2006 which was situated in the village of Bishopstrow in Wiltshire. In this project, he demonstrated the importance of the landscape to the architecture as he seeks to harmoniously merge the open sustainable house into the garden so as to display the contemporary structures with the ideal setting.
