A thoroughbred modernist house

Hampshire modern house 2


We won planning permission for this beautiful modern house in the Hampshire countryside. The single storey pavilion sits sleekly in its landscape setting. The dark metal frame sits discretely within the landscape and makes reference to Philip Johnson’s Glass House. The frame is extended beyond the internal accommodation to create shade and texture. Splayed corner posts enhance the subtle sense of enclosure, adding hierarchy to the composition. This enclosing ‘table’ floats above a brick and glass wall that roots the building to its site. The house will achieve Code 5 for Sustainable Homes. This is a thoroughbred modernist house.
