House on a Hill

With stunning views over the adjacent estuary to the north and to fields in the south, this house is built into the steep hill that dominates the village. Designed to make the most of the slope it sits within the landscape.

It has an partially open plan living, dining and kitchen space at first floor looking over the top of the adjacent rooftops, and a studio and bedrooms at ground floor. As well as a low embodied energy, low impact and low carbon build, sustainable travel is important to the client, with space for bike storage. The landscape is set out as an ‘edible garden’.

It is designed as a passivhaus home to minimise energy and carbon impact during it’s lifetime and provide a warm and comfortable space throughout the year.
