'architectural pop - the most delightful box of tricks'

  • Comment

AOC has designed a folly for a film-maker overlooking a stream at the bottom of his garden.

The room is supported on a forest of old telegraph poles, some of which are planted in the stream. The ensemble of poles relates to the grove of ash trees that the folly faces. Access is at the rear from the steep bank of the stream.

External top-hung plywood shutters are raised and lowered from Heath Robinson-like masts that deploy precisely machined yacht components. The shutters are lined with William Morris wallpaper, an abstracted interpretation of the view outside.
