Hidden House

From the architect – “Located within the small hamlet of Trevanson, North Cornwall, Hidden House nestles within an existing garden, flanked on three sides by mature trees, with expansive views towards the Camel Estuary beyond.

The beauty of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is unquestionable; the project site feels like a hidden world; immediately relaxing and connected with nature.

The limited material external palette of rugged grey brickwork reflects the tones and textures of the local stonework seen in the vernacular buildings of the area. The building is conceived to be a series of simple sculptural forms which provide an elegant backdrop to the lush vegetation within which it is embedded.

Commissioned to be a permanent home, Hidden House will provide energy-efficient, generous and flexible family accommodation—designed to take advantage of it’s secluded site with a sensitive approach in form, massing and materiality, to the landscape in which it sits.

Responding to the site’s orientation, views, and wider context, the design comprises a cluster of three masonry single-storey elements with a lightweight glazed links between which frame views and provide fluid visual connectivity with the landscape setting.

Focused around a natural swimming pool, the sheltered and private courtyard garden will provide a haven for wildlife, creating a string sense of living within a garden.”
