St Marks Road House
The house replaces a chalet bungalow.
A replacement house on a site that sits at the north of Pennington village.
The concept is based on the idea of creating an architecture that respects the idea of vernacular buildings by avoiding a single form in favour of an assemblage of smaller elements.
The design is a modern response to the site context. The designs of the houses in the surrounding area were extremely mixed so it was considered that the design of the new house could be singular without upsetting the street scene and general landscape of the neighbouring area.
Contemporary detailing is used for the new house’s design and although highly elaborate, the design respects the domestic scale and history of the property.
