Here we were invited to design an exciting prospect of a one off “Landmark House” for the renowned Lower Mill Estate.
The Lower Mill Estate is far from a typical housing estate. Landmark Homes within the estate are fluent in a building language that demands high quality and sustainable design, constrained only by a framework dictated by the idyllic setting and the rules as set by the designer.
Our Landmark home is an experiment based on the simple form of a timber box and how it should respond to a waterfront location. The simple combination of timber and glass allows the 3 storey dwelling on stilts to blend into its natural surroundings whilst providing occupants with an elevated view across the water.
The 4 bedroom/4 bathroom house boasts all the features of modern contemporary living, including centralised lighting, audio, heating/cooling control, air and vacuum systems.
The house utilises organic paints and lacquer finishes with heat pump source heating and sustainable product specification including timber flooring from sustainable sources.
