The design of the house developed in direct response to the site and its location within the beautiful village of Yalding in Kent. The building’s structure is composed to reflect the surrounding woodland, the raking columns representing the irregular angles of tree trunks and branches. Large expanses of glass fill the gaps in the structure, allowing visitors to appreciate the landscape and setting as if they were peering out from between the trunks and branches of the trees. The traditional Kentish black-and-white weatherboarding represents foliage, wrapping the building and enclosing the spaces within. The form and lines of the modernist house are geometric and crisp, creating contrast and dialogue with the surrounding natural, organic woodland.
