Concept Eight Architects

E S C House , South Road , WEYBRIDGE , Surrey , KT13 9DZ , United Kingdom

This house makes the most of its spectacular setting perched high up on the side of a hill overlooking the River Dee estuary and the North Wales countryside beyond. Care has been placed to ensuring the front drive and access to the house hides the views which are only revealed once you enter through the small front door to be presented with a picture perfect framed view of nature at the end of the entrance hallway. The house then presents its stunning setting to all the main reception rooms with expansive views out. The wonderful aspect of the house is that the views out are just as interesting during a storm in a cold winters day as it is during a stunning sunset in the summer. Extensive use of glass has transformed what was an inward focussed house, with plenty of engagement to the outside. Externally we have utilized a mixture of contemporary materials to sit alongside the traditional building form.
