This bold design has substantial glazing to take full advantage of the open views.
The main house has a basement with our two storey timber frame structure over. Next to this is the single storey social wing, a large open space fully glazed on one side to enjoy the view with a link building between.
The unusual shape of the building was no trouble for our pre-cut method, with everything factory cut allowing quick on site erection. For the social wing we avoided the use of a large, thermally poor steel beam by utilising a clever portal frame design to create the 12m x 5.7m vaulted open space.
