Construction Lines (2017)

Construction Lines is an award-winning animated short film about the interior of an ‘iceberg’ home (a home where the sub-ground levels are larger than the house above). The iceberg home in question was not developed due to hundreds of objections from surrounding neighbours in Knightsbridge, West London.

Construction Lines shows this iceberg home rendered as a 3D model, using the original architectural plans and the software ‘Sketchup’. The narrative of the film, the model of the home, and the scenes played out within it, are informed by the objections filed against the planning application, as well as online articles speculating about the lives and lifestyles of the super-rich.
