Views, local vernacular and a dramatic living space make a contemporary, crafted home designed by local practice Elliott Architects
Elliott Architects for private client
Contract value: Confidential
An edge-of-village family home draws on the local vernacular with a steeply pitched roof, elegantly proportioned form and unlaboured interfaces between unfinished larch cladding and natural zinc roofing. Orienting the house south towards views over the valley minimizes its impact on neighbours in this conservation area and protects the main garden from the prevailing wind. Inside is a dramatic interconnected living space, drawing one’s eye to celebrate the roof form. Simple passive strategies maintain temperatures throughout. A crafted, contemporary response with the client at its heart.
