“Skywood House and the Architecture of Graham Phillips” is the first collection of Graham Phillips’s work to date, a detailed and absorbing examination of the journey towards form. Here you can find informative texts by Phyllis Richardson, Kenneth Powell and Graham Phillips, specially commissioned photography by RIBA fellow Dennis Gilbert, previously unpublished drawings and detailed plans.

As Chief Executive at Foster & Partners, Graham Phillips has had responsibility for the design and construction of some of the world’s most iconic buildings. Skywood House has been called ‘a house that turns lifestyle into a work of art’ and one that ‘offers a masterclass in architecture’s power to excite and inspire’. As a structure, it reflects rigour and attention to detail, attributes that Phillips credits both to his time at Foster’s practice, and to his experiences of buildings he loves, from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and Luis Barragán’s house in Mexico City, to the serene composition of Japanese gardens.

Skywood House garnered immediate acclaim from the architectural and popular press. It also became a favoured setting for television and film producers, who found in its pure form and exquisite geometries the perfect backdrop for an array of dramatic scenarios. And Phillips’s further projects, carried out as an independent architect, resonate with the same sense of precision and elegance.
