Brooks Barn  Para 55

The design concept for this new Para 55 house responds and relates to the existing stable building, situated on a discreet tree-lined sloping site.

The central component of the design is an irregular shaped building over two floors, which blurs the lines between walls, soffits and roof.

The design reinterprets the way in which traditional building features are constructed in an architecturally innovative and interesting way. In addition, significant landscape and ecological enhancements are proposed.
