IO House wins two 2023 OPAL Awards

We are delighted to announce IO House has been presented with two 2023 OPAL Awards.


IO House, an elegant yet playful family home, triumphed in the categories of Architectural Design / House Interior and Architectural Design / Residential Single.


The Outstanding Property Awards London, OPAL, is a well-established global programme. With offices in London, Budapest, Bangkok and Los Angeles, the awards attract entries from around the world. Celebrating creativity within the global built environment, the international jury, consisting of 30 property experts, evaluates each entry against the criteria of design excellence, practicality and functionality, green design and originality. With competition from across the UK and Europe, Asia and America, we are thrilled IO House has been recognised by the OPAL jury.

Where architecture, interior design and smart tech meet, IO House is an ultra-contemporary retreat and an exemplar of the Gamification of Architecture.


Pushing the boundaries of technology and product innovation within architecture and interior design, IO House is brimming with unexpected encounters and experiences and includes moving digital walls, digitally controlled water curtains, (that ‘fall’ into the subterranean pool), and hologram art.  Floating, interactive and programmable stairs with audio visual effects, an acoustically sophisticated cinema and two interactive slides, complete with motion sensitive iris portal, add to the focus on fun. A refined, monochrome interior colour and finishes palette provides a cool backdrop for these pops of colour, innovation and theatre.

Located in a London Conservation Area, the architecture is respectful of community, heritage and environment. There is a sharp focus on sustainability and the house is off-grid.


KSR’s Architecture and Interior Design teams collaborated to design and deliver this multi award-winning property.
