Arc Architects

This house was designed for a green field site in a harsh maritime climate, with stunning views and a high level of annual sunshine. The 'Dutch Barn' form reflects the context of the farm landscape and buildings, and provides a low energy, low maintenance building, providing a modern level of comfort in a working farm environment.

Materials were selected carefully for aesthetics, functionality, low toxicity and durability. Careful orientation and facade design passively controls solar gain while exploiting the spectacular views.
