Achieving clients clear objectives through our design process is one of the first aims in every project. In this case, the task was design for a couple wishing to downsize in size while enhancing their quality of life and work.
Designed as a series of 3 connecting volumes, the arrangement of spaces in this home encourage interaction to take place within the built forms and the landscape surrounding. The centre block acts as a connection between 2 wings and houses the main entrance and dining room. The adjacent blocks set either side, one for living, the other bedrooms.
The living and kitchen spaces combined as the heart of the home. The ceiling in this room rises up into the roof pitch, achieving a client request from the original brief.
A private courtyard orientates to the south and looks into the landscape beyond. Internally rooms have been thoughtfully positioned to take advantage of the natural benefits of the site.
Timber cladding joins the 2 rendered structures. All textures and tones have been chosen to compliment the landscape setting, allowing the home to harmoniously integrate into its rural setting.
