British architectural firm SOUP Architects has made the Wedge Residence.
Completed in 2012, this modern property was offered a layout to match into the triangular pocket of an irregular shaped property.
It is found in Surrey, England, United Kingdom.
Wedge Home by SOUP Architects:
“We were approached by clients hunting to unlock the likely of a backland web site set in the rear half of an present suburban garden in Surrey. Their quick was to create a modern property for 3 generations of their family members.
The style employs the irregular form of the existing garden to tuck the proposed home into an unassuming triangular pocket to the side of the backyard that maintains prolonged views from the main house. The proposed home is orientated to minimise overlooking to/from an apartment growth to the East and maximizes afternoon and evening sun by being orientated West.
Our client’s ambition to have a relaxed, informal series of living spaces operate properly with the asymmetric volumes created. The sturdy physical connection to the backyard aims to lengthen the calm modernism of the inner spaces out to the garden backdrop.
A extremely insulated constructing material with each other with an integrated Heat Recovery Ventilation Program ensures the demand for inner space heating is stored to a minimal. Solar water panels offer most of the scorching water demand and a totally integrated rain-water harvester contributes to cold water provide.
The palette of external materials of vertical batten Western Red Cedar and dark grey smooth render subtly blends the house into its surrounding setting. Internally the use of a dark American Walnut, polished concrete, complimented by an off-white wall finish and deep slate grey finish to bathroom regions gives the project a warm material richness.”
