SOUP Architects for private client
Sliding this four bedroom house onto the end of the garden at the clients’ parents’ home required some well handled geometry. The building is primarily triangular in plan: kitchen and utility along the site boundary, and living room to the garden. It is the entrance that ties them all together, set under the cantilevered first floor to which stairs lead up. Sliding panels and doors work inside and out to cleverly link and close spaces. Minimum detailing and finishes of western red cedar and dark grey render soften the whole house from the outside.
