Luxury accommodation with the comforts of a family home environment.

Designed with the intent of being both a dwelling and an overnight high-end accommodation, Hardwood House is a contemporary designed home, which references the warm textured timber design of a European alpine chalet.

With this setting in mind, designers from Adam Kane Architects, Barry Ludlow and Adam Kane have created a modern and unique space, which fuses together the design qualities of luxury and homey comforts.

The floor-plan lends itself to the flexibility of being used as a single house, or two independent and private rentals with separate entrances, facilities and outlooks.

Externally the building was designed as two separate timber-clad gabled forms, believed appropriate for the area. These pitched-roof forms were referenced internally with high raked ceilings which create a great sense of volume whilst reminding the occupant of their setting.

It was believed that a sense of comfort and relaxation could be achieved within the interiors through a darker, emotive colour palette, which was enhanced by the predominant timber-lined finishes.

The timber floor, wall and ceiling linings, all of which were locally sourced and hand-finished, add a sense of warmth and luxury for the inhabitants, whilst referencing the surrounding garden plantings.
