Initial discussions with our clients made clear their extensive travel schedule would make a traditional project almost unmanageable.
The project consisted of three custom modules based on the OVP White Series. Working closely with the client to understand the use of the home, the architecture team devised three multi-functional areas to create the home.
The ground floor acts as the hub for the home, with communal living areas including; the kitchen, living, dining and external decking offering great links to the private garden area.
The first floor was designed to provide two distinct sleeping and living spaces to cater to the different types of groups who frequent the home. In the guest wing the customised sleeping pod consists of two bedrooms and a shared bathroom and can provide sleeping arrangements for up to seven guests. Both bedrooms rooms have built-in daybeds that double as extra sleeping space and great hidden storage.
Directly opposite the guest quarters is the owners’ retreat. This space has been configured to allow flexibility in it use with a double bedroom, walk in robe and private living space which the owners also use as a study when required. The two areas are linked by a covered breezeway that incorporates stairs to the lower levels.
Project completed in 2013.
