Rooms are flexibly interlinked to allow choices between privacy and connection, such as the shuttered openings facing each other across the double-height hallway from parent and child bedrooms. Materials including larch, concrete and ply are largely left natural and self-finished inside and out, with inspiration coming from the area’s robust and simple farm buildings.
