This residential project aimed to reorganize the ground floor layout of a two-story, semi-detached house and replace a shed at the rear of a garden with a writing hut. Both clients work from home and the design was driven by the requirement for each to have a separate working space. The connection between the house and the writing hut was therefore a key element of the project. The existing house was remodeled internally and a series of historical, ad hoc additions and alterations were removed to create improved interconnected living spaces. The connection between hut and house was reinforced by framing elements. The main house features a floating aluminum seat that becomes part of the internal seating of the house when the large glazed panels are slid open, and a garden seat at other times. It is clad in high contrast anodized aluminum and hangs from a discreet steel frame cantilevering from within the house. The reciprocal aluminum element to the writing hut can either function as an elevated seat with internal access via steps or as a display for artifacts and artwork.
