Located on the white cliffs of Dover and in the North Downs (AONB). The principal design concept, for both landscape and building proposal, comes from the two distinctive landscape characters east and west of the site.
The strategy was to stitch the site and building into the grassland landscape and chalky clifftops. The curved building form provides south facing amenity space and allows seascape views out to both the east and west.
Along the inside of this Para 55 design the internal curve facade integrates a 'solar wall’ which provides warm air to be fed into the MVHR system, thus reducing the heating requirements of the house.
