The Elements is a private new build house in Hampshire. Adjacent to the stunning River Hamble and its popular marina, it is nestled within meadows rich in native wildlife. With a global collection of friends and family, the owners required a large home in which to regularly host and entertain. The home focuses on accommodating a number of guests, providing an experience of a ‘home-from-home’. It is hoped that the home will create lasting memories among visiting friends and family.
The design focusses on sustainability and responding naturally to the elements of the site. A steel frame forms the hidden structure that facilitates the glazing and impressive cantilevers. The house is clad with Kebony Clear timber and Vande Moortel Linea Bricks, providing earthen tones that complement and blend with the surrounding gardens and rural setting. Kebony was cosen due to its durability, sustainable credentials and its exclusive look.
