BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

Beautiful House (Design competition entry) by Contemporary and Modern architects Baart Harries Newall (BHN architects) based in Shrewsbury.
Beautiful House
An entry from BHN for an international competition.
Beauty – as a modern expression, is not based on a static notion of form, it is the expression of movement and counterpoint. In a rejection of classicism it embraces asymmetrical composition – a balanced relationship of unequal parts. The home – is a place with a heart, a centre, that opens to, and engages with, the landscape.
 
The house has been designed to be viewed from all sides – there is no primary façade. It is approached along a route that terminates with a wide arc, rotating about the house, revealing all of the house sequentially. The entrance takes you to the heart of the building, to the shared living spaces at the centre. The pin wheel plan provides a recognizable centre while simultaneously extending spaces  into the landscape. Views are projected in different directions, and the immediate external space is configured into discrete areas of varying character – some open, some private.
