Home again
Home, rather than house, flat or similar nouns, carries particular meaning. I've been musing on what we mean by home a lot of late and was put onto this artist by Nigel Oxley. I've been making small Nicholsonesque (I wish) prints of domestic detail, the most recent of which was a line drawing of the standard issue South London terrace.

David Hephner has also used residential South London as his inspiration, painting meticulous representations of terraced houses and, more recently, working in mixed media on the subject of mass housing.
