Hopkins reveals first UK residential scheme for 30 years

  • Comment

Hopkins Architects has revealed details of its first UK residential project to be proposed since The Hopkins House was completed in 1976

The Long House project for Alain de Botton’s not-for-profit organisation Living Architecture will be built in Cockthorpe, Norfolk and includes a traditionally crafted flint wall on the side. Timber and steel cable-tied trusses will be used to form the structure’s pitched roof.

An open plan ground floor includes a hall, sitting room, kitchen and dining room and a double bedroom in an annex. Four more double bedrooms are located on the first floor.

Hopkins described the scheme as ‘inspired by the classic characteristics of the simple, yet grand scale, flint walled barns and churches of North Norfolk.’

He said: ‘We hope to achieve a house that is of its region, in terms of form and materials, demonstrating the best sustainable practice, with an enduring quality that is also of its time.’
