Full of intelligent and delightful design play
Micah T Jones Architect for private client
Contract value: £245,000
Cost per m²: £1,021
This is a beautifully crafted building that references its site through the use of the barn typology; the local area by its exploitation of the drumlin (little ridge) landscape; the vernacular via its scale and section, and the need to build sustainably through its location, compact form and layout.
Internally the house is full of intelligent and delightful design play. Exposed timber finishes are complemented by wood-burning stoves and cast-concrete surrounds, almost acting as sculptures. No build material was wasted in this enjoyable example of craftsmanship and design creativity, which is used to develop functional solutions that enrich and enhance the living experience of its occupants. The architect has created a beautiful, functional, hospitable and engaging home.
