Buckinghamshire House Architecture

2006

Designkommander

Set in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the stark inscrutability of a concrete monolith is interrupted by two vertical apertures. In contrast, the rear breaks down into floating blocks of rough-sawn timber, bush-hammered stone, and clear sheet-glass which diminish to the scale of the immediate landscape.

Approaching through a parkland tapestry along a winding, tree-lined avenue, flashes of white prompt inquiry. Confronting the near-impenetrable barrier, it resolves into a formal front. Once pulled inside through a tall gap, the solidity of the white facade disintegrates into a sculpted service wall that lines the length of the plan. The internal configuration comprises solids encasing private spaces and voids as living areas. A longitudinal spatial sequence culminates in a double-height space, movement along it triggered by natural light. In absolute contradiction of the front facade which denies access to nature, glazing to the back unifies landscape and interior.

Counterposing symmetry with asymmetry, the house is an investigation of the tripartite format applied at its front and implied at its rear.
