Torquay House / Wolveridge Architects
This project attempts to challenge our traditional notions of how buildings can exist both in a coastal environment and in this case also the context of an emerging built form and character.
With excellent views to the north and south and a conscious motivation to avoid the east/west outlooks, this project evolved as a series of interconnected and robustly finished containers. Each prescribed to a rigid set of rules and the relationship and spaces between containers becoming essential to the program and to the life of the building.

The walls and roof are constructed entirely of insulating concrete, the first of its kind in Germany. This material eliminates the need for additive thermal barriers.
