overhang

A 9m overhang for the balcony makes this a very light building, almost floating just above the slopes. Also the view from the balcony becomes much more uninterrupted. Notice also how the very large tree next to the structure has been left where it has always stood, in fact it is so close to the foundation that we’ve had to be very careful to use steelwork and concrete in the right places. The roof structure for safety, has had to be reinforced and braced effectively to account for the unlikely collapse of the tree, or any one of its branches in stormy weather

    here’s one of our favourite images in the office, completely modernist: this one made it to the Royal Academy, we hope to see this hang in the galleries sometime this Summer in the exhibition, London.
