Designed for a family with four children under the age of 6, the planning for ‘House of Parts’ was generated through the clients requirement for flexible and diverse spaces and for the functions of these spaces to be able to adapt over time.
The design is delivered as a sum of complex and beautifully detailed parts and challenges the notion of the singular architectural concept, commonly found in contemporary architecture.
A high priority is placed on sustainability. Stone, brick and timber from the demolition of the original structure were re-used in the new works and running costs of the project are reduced through installation of a photo-voltaic system, rainwater storage and a wind powered generator.
