Place: Yalding, Kent (Great Britain)
Designer: Arch. Matthew Heywood
Client: Ecolibrium Solutions
The design of the house developed in direct response to the site and its location within the beautiful village of Yalding in Kent. The building’s structure is composed to reflect the surrounding woodland with the raking columns representing the irregular angles of tree trunks and branches. In contrast to the surrounding nature, the form and lines of the house are intentionally very geometric and crisp, creating a dialogue between the organic woodland and the modernist box.
Inside this unique home, Fontanot manufactured the staircase designed by the architect Matthew Heywood, based on our Lafont Fulmine model, with a structure in white varnished carbon steel, treads in solid ash and railing and balustrade in extra clear tempered stratified glass.
