With a dramatically sloping site, planning restrictions on the permitted development height and an underground stream, this two storey private house with basement presented several unique challenges.
The scheme incorporates a structure that comprises retaining walls with a unified waterproof basement box and contiguous piling joining with a lightweight steel frame and low profile floor slab construction. In addition, the brief included sophisticated M&E systems with state-of-the-art A/V installations. All designed, coordinated and integrated with the architecture to give the building its clean minimalist lines. This project represented a study in full design team co-ordination.
