Millway House and Studio, Suffolk

Situated in the Suffolk countryside, this house is designed to passive standards, with a highly insulated and airtight timber frame constructed off a heavy concrete base. The house also boasts an array of low energy systems to maximise performance. Built in the curtilage of a listed farmhouse and barns, careful consideration was given to the setting of the project.

Carefully tailored to the lifestyle of the clients, the project connects them to the land they have worked for many years. At the heart of the house is a beautifully crafted kitchen around which the accommodation flows, and a snug to enjoy the undulating landscape.  A double height atrium connects the levels of the house - from the subterranean guest rooms in the semi basement below; hunkered and secure, to the airy master suite above; light and dreamy. The main living accommodation is on a split ground level, creating a lofty dining space with carefully placed windows to the listed farmouse next door. Materials reference the landscape, connecting the earth and sky, and allowing memories and relationships to form.

'Careful consideration to form, position, design, client considerations and aspirations to the scheme led to this project being a delight for the jury to visit. In sustainability, budget, timetable, engagement, invention and response to the site ... this project ticked all the boxes of what good architecture is about.'
