Drawing reference from the typical Russian Dacha, this fully prefabricated timber house is nestled tightly between the trees in the woods of Hampshire. The house was designed by alma-nac, a London based, RIBA Chartered architecture practice. Constructed from SIPS panel technology, the fully insulated, water tight frame of the building was erected in just ten days, ensuring a reduced build time without compromise on build quality or thermal efficiency.
The building is carefully positioned to create a relationship with the existing mature trees on the site; naturally controlling privacy, incoming light levels and providing framed views of specific trees as one circulates the house.
A traditional form of the house faces the more public entrance to the site, with the form disseminating into the private landscape.
