A sloping site enables part of the house to embedded into the gradient realising a single storey pavilion which floats on top.
LM Architecture studio were approached to design a modest family home on a site which benefits from both the countryside and coastal setting. The aim was to utilise the sloping gradient as an opportunity instead of constraint, something which is a direct response to the sites characteristics. The family, who plan to use the home as weekend getaway sought a refined, simple internal layout which has an external appearance to match.
A limited palette of natural materials and simple forms aim to realise a contemporary, stripped back building. The white vertical timber wraps around the lightweight pavilion floating above a heavy stone plinth. The view greets the user upon entry, with the open plan living space to one side, and the master suite and a further bedroom to the other. The lower ground floor offers 2 further bedrooms, with a link to the garden below. A stone wall protrudes from the lower ground floor wall into the garden to help connect the house to the landscape it sits within.
