Emmerson House hinges around an open structural corner that seamlessly connects the principle dining and living spaces to a raised, south-facing courtyard. Framed by two Lime trees, the entrance to the building steps up from ground level and is enveloped by a timber structure above. Windows to the first floor are surrounded by projecting timber window reveals that contrast with the stark graphite cladding. This balance of natural and man-made materials continues within the building interior where a bespoke timber stairwell frames a skylight above and wraps around the entrances to the bedrooms. The layout of the house is structured around contemporary family life, offering generous spaces to share with others and come together, along with more private spaces such as the adult-oriented snug or children’s play-spaces.

Construction is due to complete summer 2018.
