Rockmount Residence in Wirral

The site is an extraordinary elevated mound with views towards the setting sun across the River Dee to the North Wales coast. Shed KM’s ingenious response is a new take on a classic modern linear house plan.

Two linear blocks rotated at 90° to each other divide the house efficiently and cleverly into four zones: children’s rooms, pool, master suite and study and fully-glazed living area. The impact of the house is disguised with a sandstone semi-buried ground floor plinth allowing the upper accommodation to float over the garden and surrounding landscape. With a few nods in the direction of America’s west coast mid-century modern homes, this is an original and inspiring new composition that matches the quality of its setting in every way.
