Hampshire based modern architects, AR Design Studio have designed a highly contemporary four bedroom home located in the heart of the Kent countryside. Secluded and surrounded by mature trees and gardens, Yeomans nestles within the landscape incorporating a sophisticated integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Inspired by the building and land topography of Dungeness, located on the south Kent coast, this house is a collection of five modules clustered around a peristyle courtyard, offering a tranquil mixture of sheltered and exposed spaces.
These spaces connect the rear of the four blackened timber elements together, which each offer a unique singular view out onto one of four gardens, creating an ever changing seasonal experience. The linear viewscreated are then offset by the fifth two storey element offering an elevated 360 degree view across the whole site.
The accommodation is predominantlylocated on the ground floorwith each module providing a different use. Thisincludes an open plan kitchen, living, and dining area, along with three double bedrooms and a master suite, a second living area is located in the tower with a pool and pool house to the west.
Access to the house is by a sunken driveway with parking underneath a cantilevered element emphasizing its dynamic relationship to the context.
