Thompson House in Isle of Wight, UK by Manser Practice Architects

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Article source: Manser Practice Architects

The Clients brief was for their weekend and holiday house, a compact 1960’s bungalow, to be enlarged, giving more living accommodation and enhancing the views of the sea to the north and west. Maintaining the private/secret nature of the site was also a requirement.

An initial proposal to simply add a glass pavilion living room to the existing house appeared to fulfil the brief.  Keeping the house single storey kept the building low enough not to have a view of nearby houses but adding the new space to the north of the existing house located the main living space in a position with a more commanding view over the woods below to the Solent beyond.
