Project no.18

Cantilevered Timber House

The brief was to provide a 4 bedroom family home with a material connected to nature.  This larch and stone clad property, with its  low-lying roof and defined geometric lines, evokes style elements seen in Scandinavian or Japanese houses.

The transparent walls bring lots of natural light and beautiful views in, providing a deep connection with nature. Privacy may be one of the concerns with such architectures but the one-way vision glasses and curtains take good care of it.  

The popularity of open-plan spaces with extensive glazing is constantly on the up. It’s no surprise that the desire for light-filled designs that maximise the room available is relatable for a lot of self-builders. For many of us, such schemes reflect our lifestyle and what we want from a bespoke home.
