Mead House
This project is for an extension to a country house designed by Brutalist architect Ivor Smith in the 1960’s. It is located in Ewelme, Oxfordshire, which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The brief is for a multipurpose room placed within the garden, to feel separate from the main house but connected via a hallway. The room is designed to be strongly conscious of its surrounding rich environment. Walls are cut away and broken down to sections that provide controlled views of the outside. The rooflights are specifically placed to cast shadows that change throughout the day.
