Haus R/ House R

The position of the new garage forms a protective barrier for the garden, shielding it from the noise of the road and offering the space a sense of intimacy. From the garage there is now access to the house, via swing doors and covered walk-way. You can also reach the front door by passing a small, intimate porch.

The outside of the house is clad in natural, and regionally sourced, silver fir shingles and this surface finish continues into the interior. Despite the generous glazing on all sides, when entering the house the wood creates a homely atmosphere.
