British architectural firm SOUP Architects has designed the Wedge Residence.
Completed in 2012, this contemporary property was offered a layout to match into the triangular pocket of an irregular shaped house.
It is situated in Surrey, England, United Kingdom.
Wedge Property by SOUP Architects:
“We were approached by consumers hunting to unlock the potential of a backland internet site set in the rear half of an existing suburban garden in Surrey. Their brief was to generate a modern property for 3 generations of their family members.
The style makes use of the irregular shape of the current garden to tuck the proposed home into an unassuming triangular pocket to the side of the garden that maintains extended views from the primary property. The proposed house is orientated to minimise overlooking to/from an apartment improvement to the East and maximizes afternoon and evening sun by getting orientated West.
Our client’s ambition to have a relaxed, informal series of living spaces function effectively with the asymmetric volumes designed. The powerful physical connection to the garden aims to extend the calm modernism of the internal spaces out to the garden backdrop.
A highly insulated constructing fabric with each other with an integrated Heat Recovery Ventilation Technique guarantees the demand for internal space heating is kept to a minimum. Solar water panels supply most of the hot water demand and a completely integrated rain-water harvester contributes to cold water supply.
The palette of external supplies of vertical batten Western Red Cedar and dark grey smooth render subtly blends the home into its surrounding environment. Internally the use of a dark American Walnut, polished concrete, complimented by an off-white wall finish and deep slate grey finish to bathroom locations gives the project a warm material richness.”
