About the project
A contemporary house hidden away from view in a wood full of oak trees sounds like the ideal location to live. And it is. A farming family wanted a new home that they could move into on their land in the green hills of Wales. With beautiful views across the valley, the design opens up the front and rear elevations with almost complete floor to roof glazing and a double height internal space that makes the inside and outside visually feel like one space.
Locally sourced natural materials are used to help make the house blend and age with it’s natural habitat. The layout is split into three zones. One for living, one for sleeping and one for circulation that links the other two together
Environmental design is close to their hearts and so a ground source heat pump is being integrated to provide all their hot water and heating requirements. A local natural spring will also provide water.
