Dezeen Awards 2022
Bridging the Test River in Hampshire, this private dwelling is designed for a keen trout fly-fisherman - and is designed to leave as little impact on the site as possible.
Dancing around all manner of constraints ranging from an SSSI exclusion zone, to legal restraints and all manner of planning protections - the house is designed as entirely off-grid building which 'kisses' the ground in only four locations - on removable stainless steel screw piles.
The client is highly security conscious and the building is designed to transform from a bridge to a cocoon with drawbridges at either end that can be closed up like the tail of a Hercules Military Transport aircraft.
