A stunning, weathering steel clad dwelling located in Buckinghamshire.

This unusual site required a careful balance of understanding to nature and local history to unlock an innovative and outstanding solution.

Closer investigation to the site and surroundings lead to investigations of local interest in clay tiles, historic lace-making and locally seen arboricultural and wildlife specific areas of interest with Norway maple, great willow and the barn owl.

The build sits on three levels on a twisted axis and the facade provides a triple layered solution allowing air to be utilised as an insulator and clay being used as a heat sink.
