The house demonstrates a progressive approach to architecture through the fluid form of it’s expressive curved concrete facade and flowing internal planning. Carved double height openings provide solar protection whilst framing the landscape beyond. An oculus skylight signals the entry.

In our clients own words;
‘The design of our home enables us to meet and interact in a comfortable central downstairs area and it also provides a number of cosy zones to relax in peace. During long periods of Covid lockdown we appreciated the light, the space and the versatile nature of the room layouts. We were all able to happily study, work and play in one place – with the gentle curves of the walls providing us with a sense of security, warmth and comfort’.

Brush house is a calm refuge – a delicate balance between mass and weightlessness expressed in its organic materiality. An exploration in form and light where a sense of restraint prevails.
