We were approached by enlightened clients looking to unlock the potential of a backland site set in the rear half of an existing suburban garden in Surrey. Their brief was to create a contemporary house for 3 generations of their family.Save this picture!© Andy MatthewsThe design uses the irregular shape of the existing garden to tuck the proposed house into an unassuming triangular pocket to the side of the garden that maintains long views from the main house. The proposed house is orientated to minimise overlooking to/from an apartment development to the East and maximizes afternoon and evening sun by being orientated West.Save this picture!© Andy MatthewsOur client’s ambition to have a relaxed, informal series of living spaces work well with the asymmetric volumes created. The strong physical connection to the garden aims to extend the calm modernism of the internal spaces out to the garden backdrop.Save this picture!© Andy MatthewsA highly insulated building fabric together with an integrated Heat Recovery Ventilation System ensures the demand for internal space heating is kept to a minimum. Solar water panels provide most of the hot water demand and a fully integrated rain-water harvester contributes to cold water supply.Save this picture!© Andy MatthewsThe palette of external materials of vertical batten Western Red Cedar and dark grey smooth render subtly blends the house into its surrounding environment. Internally the use of a dark American Walnut, polished concrete, complimented by an off-white wall finish and deep slate grey finish to bathroom areas gives the project a warm material richness.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessClustered Dwellings Building / Ana Smud + Estudio Rietti SmudSelected ProjectsRecycle step by step / Dom Arquitectura + Asa StudioSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Andy Matthews+ 25 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSOUP ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThames DittonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on September 08, 2013Cite: “Wedge House / SOUP Architects” 08 Sep 2013.
