Entry Description: Completed in 2015, this single-storey house suits the retired clients’ future needs, along with the needs of their disabled daughter, whilst giving an elegant solution to a steeply sloping site. The house sits lightly in its wooded surroundings, and provides stunning views across the surrounding countryside. The house exterior consists of exposed waterproof concrete and larch cladding, and the single volume cantilevers over a retaining Purbeck stone wall to deal with the level changes and views and creates a sheltered parking area. The wood and stone used are as untouched as possible and the garden is also mostly un-manicured and designed to be as wild as possible - this all contributes to the sustainability of the project, but also to celebrate the honest materials used. Huge sliding glass panel doors provide a lot of natural light to flood in, as well as good ventilation in the summer.
