Located in a dream place, on a sheep station in North Wales, this sweet little construction is a dream fulfilled. The building is situated at the very edge of a ridge that exist among dignified granite boulders and ancient trees. Being inside the tiny house one can enjoy the endless beautiful views that open in front of his eyes.
The purpose of the house is to be a small retreat for a couple. That’s why the architect didn’t want to waste space and constructed a minimal 3x3m footprint that provides shelter. When looking at the house one can conclude that it looks very much like a copper tower. On its both sides, it is widely open to the landscape, thus providing enough area for side verandas, where a couple can enjoy their life together in the fresh mountain air. Near the building, there are water tank and witches that are used to help the movable veranda roofs once they need to be opened or closed. When the roofs are folded down, they completely enclose the timber and glass interior from any kind of unsuitable conditions.
One of the brilliant architectural decisions was to include sustainable functions for the building. For example, the rain water is collected on the roof. It is distributed for the needs of the household inside, while a separate WC in copper cladding and located nearby uses its own water system. Actually, the architect used copper for the main construction because they wanted to create a windproof place insulated from searing daytime temperatures. On the other hand, despite the high level of outer conditions prevention, inside the house there is a free movement of air through layered walls which allow natural ventilation.
And last but not least, we should also mention the architect and this is Jeffery Broadfield.
