RIBA House of the Year 2017
A zero-carbon country estate set in 83 acres near Maidstone, Kent. The clients requested a country home of outstanding quality, rooted in its context, where they, their three daughters and families could coexist as one; a house for four in one. The house responds strongly to the slope of the site which determines the layout and organisation in section and plan. It is modern & sculptural in design yet remains infused with a spirit of regional identity. Beyond the house an estate cottage and barn complete the settlement. This project was designed in collaboration with James Wright.
