Canopy House allows an experience of the surroundings at multiple levels as well as creating a distinct relationship between inside and out.
At ground level, the thud of the earth is evident, with the progression through the central and upper floors leaving the user floating amongst the tree canopies. These varying outlooks provide opportunities to create compelling spaces, strategically scaled to enjoy entertaining or tranquil solitude. In response to the chaos of the garden, this comfortably brutalist design employs bold, clean lines, layering raw concrete and steel with soft, textured materials to create a refined interior.
This project has been longlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
