Woodend House 1
The site for this new 2 storey house, although rural has a strong urban context, the house is designed to sit well in the rural slope of the site, yet fulfil the client’s contemporary and traditional requirements for their lifestyle and a young and growing family. The design accommodates a number of environmental criteria through material use, orientation and passive heating and cooling and has been well thought out by both our client and us to make a minimal imprint the site and environment.
The sloping site a tree overlay gave a specific area in which to design, the footprint and site restrictions determined the well planned house.
The plan relates well to the sloping site as well as the distant view, creating a simple house with a small footprint, to minimise the impact on the site. The house has been designed with input from both the client and the builder to achieve a highly detailed, yet simple house, with many sustainable design ideas incorporated to create a well designed and functional house, a country house at heart with simple contemporary detailing.
