Corner House

Projects / Corner House

Proposals for a new house on the site of a derelict Scout Hut, required a careful approach. The site is prominent and has a history of planning refusal.

The brief has been to optimise the site- this is reflected in

  • the orientation of the house to maximise the South orientation
  • the topography by cutting into the slope
  • the street-scape to access the road form the North
  • the context, by careful development of the form, materials and architectural references.
  • The plan- with a layout that allows for flexible, modern family life with the option for a granny flat and/or home office.
