The client’s brief was to create a contemporary house but utilise a more traditional structure using conventional A-framed pitched roofs. The design of the pitched roof dictated the timeless u-shaped plan arrangement around which the house relates to the rear entertainment area and garden. Steel was used to introduce more modern materials to enhance the traditional form.
