This private house and working studio is magnificently placed on a hillside, enjoying wonderful local views.
Configured as a personal retreat, the scheme supports comfortable living, the ability to work in a focussed manner and the space and facilities to enjoy social gatherings.
The house is integrated within a larger landscaped footprint. The whole assembly is orientated to optimise winter solar gain and summer self shading.
The building fabric is simple and classically robust, with elemental build-ups to ensure very low energy usage, maximising sustainability both in the building, as well as its systems.
