Hyde + Hyde wins planning for 'secluded woodland' home

Planning permission has been granted for this home in South Wales designed by Hyde + Hyde Architects

The Swansea and Cardiff-based architects has designed the house for a retired couple that are returning to South Wales from California.

Located within a secluded woodland near the Loughour estuary in South Wales the house stands on a plinth to overcome the uneven rural terrain.

Work is scheduled to start on site this winter.


Architect’s view

From various vantage points around the site the home appears as single storey pavilion suspended over the landscape, from others a two storey monolith.

The home celebrates different personalities depending on the ‘micro’ contextual condition it confronts.
