Hyde + Hyde News – January

In January we gained planning for a new home on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales.

The new contemporary home will be built from oak, concrete, limestone and blackened steel. The home continues practice research, developing buildings that are closely associated with region and place.

The material language of the ground floor responds to the medieval tradition of dry stone walling found in the area. Portal windows to the ground floor bedrooms cantilever over a reflecting pool that gathers rainwater from the roofs above.

Living spaces are found at first floor, resting on exposed beams which themselves learn from the tectonic construction of agricultural buildings nearby.
