Ash House responds to the needs of its clients in a restrained and beautiful way. Eschewing traditional house plan forms, it nonetheless answers all the needs of a busy family with clearly defined zones and exquisite attention to detailing. The materials palette of redbrick, iroko and polished concrete flows from exterior to interior. Concealed storage, a dual circulation route and the creation of ‘quiet’ spaces are clever components of this complex and well-considered domestic project. The interior spaces are enhanced by glimpses and views of the four diverse garden landscapes, the most spectacular being the rear courtyard dominated by a single ash tree which gives the house its name.
