Butterfly House information please
Dear Sir — Readers! Can any of you please help?
You are all aware that the iconic cantilever roofed bungalow, (the Butterfly House) in West Heath has been demolished. I would like to write up the history of this building, as it was unique in design. I have been in touch with Gordon Ball the architect, and he is very kindly going to provide me with some information on the original design, how it came about etc. I would like to have any information on the occupants of this house.
I know that the first occupant’s wife was a pianist and that was the principle reason for the unusual design to improve acoustics.
