location: Feock, Cornwall
Working with a young family seeking to relocate to Cornwall, we developed designs for a dramatic house on a steep woodland site in the village of Feock in south Cornwall. Bedrooms are on the ground floor running parallel to the contours, while the living accommodation on the upper floor is rotated through 90 degrees. The lounge, dining room and kitchen therefore enjoy stunning views across the garden from a privileged, raised and cantilevered position, surrounded by the canopies of the nearby trees.
"At every stage KAST have been incredibly supportive and their handling throughout the planning stages was so diplomatic. Their love of great craftsmanship and their passion for Cornish materials shines through every aspect of the house. We are not only proud of the amazing achievement Sylvania is, but we are proud to call KAST our friends."
