This dwelling is situated on a prominent site that with rambling views across the county’s rich and powerful landscape. The contemporary rural architecture of the project allows for a reflection of this without overwhelming its context.
The design sought to challenge the preconceived notions of traditional rural architecture, by using in a contemporary way a simple palette of materials that echo the past to create a modern family home in a rural setting. Exploring the views from the site and allowing for a mixture of scales through the massing of the form allows the building to sit comfortably within its context.
