Rosedale

The Rosedale Residence is a ground up 6,000 sf house on the last available site adjacent to the historic Rosedale Conservancy, located in Cleveland Park in northwest Washington, DC. The Conservancy dates back 280 years into Washington history and is home to one of the oldest private residences in the area. Over the years, the neighborhood grew up around the estate as lots bordering the three-acre, conserved green space were sold off. The lawn is now open to the public and serves as a dog park for the community. The last available lot near the conservatory, 3/4 acre, was purchased by a young family interested in building their dream home on these grounds. KUBE worked with the homeowners and an array of organizations to design an approved set... More

Taper House

Our clients found the original Edwardian layout of their new home in Barnes, South West London with it’s dark interiors and cellular, disconnected spaces hard to reconcile with their desire for light filled, free flowing spaces with a bold design and connection to the garden.For phase one, we tapered the interior walls away from the entrance to frame and expand views towards and through the garden as you move into the house, towards the greenery. Planes of tiled and oak floor finishes follow the angled hallway through the large open plan kitchen, dining and snug defining and demarking function and continue out across the garden patio to form a raised flowerbed connecting the inside with outside. The interior bench seating passes throug... More

Shearwaters

Shearwaters is a replacement dwelling in the Pembrokeshire Town of Tenby. It is located on the southern side of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The site is located at a cliff top boasting panoramic views from Tenby to the west and the Bristol channel to the south.The brief was to create a contemporary 5-bedroom dwelling that was unique but complementing of the typical pitched roof vernacular of the area. The design developed out of a series of detailed studies into the local roof forms, pitches and relationships between geometries.The plan spreads east and west to the boundaries of the long and narrow site to maximise the size of the front and rear gardens. A ground floor form containing the dining and living spaces reaches out to th... More

Salters Acres

Salters Acres is a development of 3 detached houses on Stockbridge Road in Winchester. The 3 houses were conceived in response to the suburban setting of the site on the edge of Winchester; the character of the area is quite mixed so we set out to establish a design that would feel comfortable within its setting without overtly replicating one of the various architectural styles in the vicinity. The simple, recognisable pitched roof form and the prominent chimneys reference the Victorian vernacular of many of the residential areas of the city, whilst the yellow brick, the contemporary detailing and the large windows gives the development a more distinctive and modern character. The layout creates an active street scene with openings and... More

MEADOWCROFT

The brief required a large contemporary family house that would take advantage of the lovely views over the fields and the Solent beyond. The site lies within an Area of Special Character that is made up of predominantly traditional pitched roof houses, so the design of the new house had to mediate between the clients desire for a contemporary house and the planners requirements for a pitched roof form. The design also had to appear modest from the front to respect the 2 storey properties either side. The resultant form is a house that appears as 2 storeys from the front, but whose roof rises up to 3 storeys at the rear to give expansive open views across the fields. The pitched roof and large chimney to the side echo the character... More
