The owner of the property was an expert in glazing themselves, and the specification of the timber windows and doors was a key part of the design.
The prevailing design of the modern house was created to make the most of the views afforded to the site thanks to its elevated location.
The house structure was created based on a series of boxes, connected together thanks to the rich material palette of the architectural design. The multi layered boxes allowed the sites size and scale to be maximises and creates a unique character to the design.
Traditional natural stone was used extensively to the exterior façade and was chosen to contrast with the dark grey finish chosen for the timber windows. Elsewhere, some of the boxes were clad in Ipe timber, creating a warm design that changes with nature.
External terraces and balconies were forged from blackened steel that span the rear of the property. Glass is introduced to these external areas to ensure no views are lost.
This unique combination of materials sets the building apart from its neighbours and creates an eye catching design.
