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 to a traditional backdrop.
The home is set over a split level with private, smaller spaces to the street and larger open plan living to the rear. 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.
