PDF Project Profile
Two distinctive pitched volumes of contrasting materials straddle the sloping site. Set in the suburbs of Cobham in Surrey, the home responds to the natural topography, creating a split level plan. One pitched form is clad in red brick, another in vertical timber cladding; both accented by zinc detailing to the front and rear facade. Large oversized glazing systems are framed by the zinc whilst smaller, recessive windows are set into the heavy brick faces. Within its context, the home aims to nestle amongst neighbouring homes through its height, massing, materiality and form; therein providing a contemporary architectural language against a traditional backdrop.
The home functions over a split level arrangement of rooms with private and smaller spaces fronting the street whilst larger open plan living spills onto the rear terrace and generous garden. Four bedrooms are carefully crafted within the pitched volumes, each with en suites and walk in wardrobes. Rooms have large glazed elements and in combination, link the inside to the outside seamlessly.
