Description

Construction Lines is an animated short film about the interior of an 'iceberg' home. Iceberg homes are mansions owned by London’s super rich where the sub-ground levels are larger than the house above. The 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 the neighbours filed against the planning application, as well as online articles speculating about the lives and lifestyles of the super-rich.
