Sandhills Road House

The idea is two sheds linked by stretched canopy. The house is two enclosed areas joined by a floating pavilion. Sliding glass doors and adjustable shades allow the pavilion to respond to different conditions. This space is for eating, dining and relaxing within the natural surrounds. The enclosed forms are clad in band sawn ply sheets and permeable metal screens, one roofed as a platform for the solar energy array whilst a roof deck on the other gives outlook to the horizon over the sea.

Project Details: Internal floor area is approximately 260m2. Construction was completed in mid-2008. Fearon Hay’s project team was led by Chris Wood & Christopher Smaill. Tim Hay and Jeff Fearon are the design architects. Photography is by Patrick Reynolds.
