This 28 sq.m. annex is the latest addition to a woodland summer house property that has been slowly developed since the 1930’s, retaining the natural habitat to a rare degree in an area where most people give priority to sun and views. It replaces an existing annex along a steep rocky outcrop, and contains a suspended bed, bathroom and toilet, and a flexible number of guest bed spaces. The self-supporting tripod concrete structure is anchored to the rock. Inside, the owners wove a ceiling of oak strips. An internal membrane and 25mm of superinsulation ensures thermal comfort throughout the year.
