The design for this small rural house in the New Forest by hampshire architects Deer Park Alpha is a response to the needs of composer, sound artist and installation artist, Hywel Davies.
The house is essentially a one-room cottage, organised into two halves with spaces formed with large and small alcoves around a central fireplace. It is made on the earth, from the earth, and over time will return to the earth. The house will be entirely off-grid and self-sufficient.
The north half of the house contains the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and entrance and is made with a thick cob wall. The south half, constructed of locally sourced timber, is the main studio and flexible living area.
Exhibited at ArtSway in June 2010. You can download a PDF of the project here
