Kite House

AR Design Studio as Architects

Set amongst a verdant backdrop and overlooking the River Avon, the site offered great potential with inspiration being taken from the natural topography of the site, the river and the long distance views. To the North-West across the floodplain, Salisbury Cathedral’s spire can be spotted and the South-West aspect affords a far reaching outlook across the water meadows and down the river.

These constraints orchestrated a multifaceted three winged approach to the design, with the house carefully positioned to avoid close proximity to the banks of the river. The cranked form of the house responds to each of the views which then informs the three resulting gardens; the arrival courtyard, vegetable garden and waterside gardens.
