In Berkshire, UK, the Hind House was completed in 2008 by John Pardey Architects, a Hampshire based studio. The house had to be adapted to the seasonal flooding, so it was build on stilts, as it is situated right on the banks of river Loddon. The architects say that they based their project on few important elements like raising the structure to prevent damages that may occur from flooding and creating living areas, guest and bedroom spaces.
Steel structure, cedar and zinc cladding, aluminum framed windows are the exterior features of the house. And with all the transparency given by the glass, the volume hosting two levels seems a little bit like a dollhouse. Two of the walls in the master bedroom are made of glass, so the room is simply abounded by light and lovely views. On top of this, there’s the bathtub which completes the room with a dose of sophistication.
