House for a Photographer

Pushing structure to its limit, with an extreme cantilever that reaches out to distant views like a camera obscura, House for a Photographer quietly defies gravity in an abandoned quarry on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The unique site demands an architectural intervention of elegant simplicity. Constructed from concrete and timber, a red oxidised steel-panelled facade effortlessly embeds the building into its surroundings and weathers with grace. The 4 bed home is equipped with a dark room, library and a secret outdoor cigar room, while external bridges connect to plateaus carved into sandstone, terminating at a firepit up high. The home is a place to craft memories with family and friends, surrounded by the abundance of nature.
