Project Description

This striking modern house in West Knoyle, Wiltshire has a bold geometric concept.

A timber clad extruded trapezium sits on top of a solid stone (Shaftesbury Greensand) and render base and is adjoined by a simple two storey flat roof box.

The principal living rooms are located on the first floor allowing this contemporary family house to take advantage of the views of the surrounding Wiltshire farmland.

The stone exterior wall continues through to the entrance hallway, a double height space flooded with light with a statement staircase.

All materials from the demolished buildings were recycled for either the new dwelling's construction or used on other sites.
