DK-Architects has created a contemporary family property within the grounds of a historic mansion in Liverpool.
The project is a pavilion-like home set within the grounds of a Grade II Listed Georgian mansion house.
It is designed as a light-weight single-storey pavilion with contoured landscape modelling creating sunken courtyard gardens. These slopes gracefully from the main garden to basement-level, ensuring outlook and light to the lower-level bedrooms while affording privacy to more intimate spaces, and reducing visual impact on the listed building.
The upper-ground level provides open-plan living accommodation within a glazed envelope protected by dramatic overhanging soffits. Expanses of uninterrupted glazing provide wraparound views of extensive landscaped gardens, while attention to detail accentuates the modernist aesthetic.
