This design for a new house in Kent was an opportunity to explore ideas about the relationship between the landscape and the key human situations encountered in a house. The dining table around which the family & their friends gather becomes the centre of the scheme, occupying an irregular, abstract space between a series of pavilions. These pavilions in turn sit at the centre of a circular landscape geometry that screens the house from its neighbours and opens up vistas to wider views. The house becomes a kind of hill town, its central living space its town square. A remote pavilion sunk in the nearby escarpment is accessed from a rooftop hatch, and contains a hidden world.
