The Contemporary English Home

Designed by British firm Hudson Architects, Bavent House is a contemporary four-bedroom home in the delightful Suffolk countryside, England.

The project was completed in 2011 and is visually reminiscent of a barn, the contemporary home incorporates a striking black zinc Iroko cladding, naturally weathering material that blends in with the Suffolk countryside of  reeds and grass.

The building forms a U-shape  with two wings enclosing a south-facing courtyard. Internally this relates to a double height space, which with an office space on the first floor bridge and a large dining area on the ground floor forms the core of the building. From here the building is divided into two sections with a large living room with guest bedrooms above on one side. The kitchen, snug and utility spaces serve as the everyday rooms on the other side with the two main bedrooms above.

Views are framed with a mixture of small and large picture windows to give a varied perspective onto the landscape below. An overhanging roof on the northwest elevation accentuates the sense of looking down onto the marshes as the landscape falls away. Images courtesy of James Brittain Photography.
