So what better way to cap off this year and head into 2015 than by taking a look at this fabulous 17th century Grade II Listed cottage in that has acquired a smart contemporary extension! A project completed by Jonathan Tuckey Design in collaboration with Eastabrook Architects the Yew Tree House steals the show with its innovative makeover.
A chic living area filled with an eclectic collection of furniture welcomes you while a smart dining room and kitchen along with the terraced garden are tucked away in the lower level beautifully. Iconic additions like the Eames Lounger along with the rough brick floor give the kitchen a cozy relaxed vibe. Ample natural ventilation flows through the garden ensuring that there is never a dull moment here
Extending the living space outside this expansive deck offers unabated views while staying visually connected with the dining space and the kitchen indoors. Housed on the top floor this level also contains the living area.
While it might look like an alien spaceship that landed in the middle of a field WG3’s Hypercubus is actually a miniature hotel room that allows guests to experience modular living on a small scale for a few days. Meant to be an oasis that draws the surrounding landscape indoors the minimalist accommodations are surprisingly spacious on the inside thanks to a cozy lofted bedroom.
The exterior of in uses natural and aged materials that include travertine blocks in various shades giving it a unique and exceptional façade. This is combined with rusticated timber concrete and steel to shape a house that blends complete privacy with lovely outdoor living spaces.
Private spaces are housed on the second floor while the top level features the terrace and the sundeck. Even though this is a shipping container home it seems to match any other house both in terms of comfort and spaciousness
Centered around a peaceful minimalist lifestyle the residence also has an interesting ability — the exterior can be folded up onto itself to secure the home for transport or when the owners are away for extended periods of time.
