Ben Rhydding Road
This project is a new-build house set into a challenging, sloping, and heavily wooded site on the outskirts of Ilkley by the entrance to Ilkley Moor in Yorkshire. The lower level of the house will contain all the bedrooms and ancillary accommodation, with masonry stone walls tying in to the rocky dramatic site. A timber pavilion space on the first floor contains an open plan living space with a large roof terrace. We tailored the design of this terrace following a solar analysis to maximise the sun to this terrace. A ground source heat pump and solar thermal panels will provide an energy efficient heat source for the building.
Timescale: Completed in 2014
