Small Rural House, New Forest by Hampshire Architects

Small Rural House, New Forest by Hampshire Architects

The design for this small rural house in the New Forest by hampshire architects Deer Park Alpha is a response to the needs of composer, sound artist and installation artist, Hywel Davies.

The house is essentially a one-room cottage, organised into two halves with spaces formed with large and small alcoves around a central fireplace. It is made on the earth, from the earth, and over time will return to the earth. The house will be entirely off-grid and self-sufficient.

The north half of the house contains the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and entrance and is made with a thick cob wall. The south half, constructed of locally sourced timber, is the main studio and flexible living area.

Exhibited at ArtSway in June 2010. You can download a PDF of the project here
