Surrey House Architecture

House in Surrey
Date: 2009
Design: Designkommander, Architects

Located at the north of a rural site, a fragmented orthogonal form lies in forest. It appears re-configured as pure symmetry on flatter terrain to the south. And to the east, it is finally re-iterated as a grid.

Surrey House by Designkommander

Drawn into an ethereal woodland clearing by glimpses through trees and by the sound of running water, a fragmented form is discovered. It splinters like boulders snapped from the nearby scarp to re-assemble into a house.

Exterior walls enliven with shadows. Then the rains come. Sheeting down facade recesses: surfaces obscure, solids dissolve; landscape drips silver. Pursuing water as it is collected and dispensed across the site by an hydraulic system of shallow runs and still pools leads to the flattened planes of an enclosure.

These coalesce into a formal walled garden which envelops, offering a pause for contemplation. Following the water’s course once more, geometry is found transposed into a grid. Observed from carefully arranged vantage points, illuminations delineate a vineyard.

Taken together, each of these three, interlinking components is understood as a re-interpretation of the classical cube.
