House in Gloucestershire

Design: Found Associates

RIBA Awards 2012 Citation:

Private House, Gloucestershire

The Planners required that any new building on the site must be an extension to a tiny neglected gamekeeper’s cottage and that it be subordinate to it in scale. End of project. Instead the architect and the client successfully argued for series of dry stone walls and terraces in which the house is buried under grass roofs. The result is a house of substantial scale that does not overwhelm the cottage, with its linear form exploited to create an unfolding sequence of spaces of special character.

This is a project of great simplicity, in terms of materials and strategy and at the same time, considerable sophistication, in its theatrical approach to space and light with both framed and expansive views and contrasting spatial events.
