Cooke House

This house was designed for clients in the grounds of a listed building.

Figura designed the house to respect its historic neighbour while providing the contemporary living environment requested by the clients.

The timber famed structure is a hybrid of stressed-skin panels, heavy timber posts, beams & trusses.

This very strong structure has allowed us to provide large areas of glazing and vertical spaces within the house.

Contemporary features, such as roof glazing are integrated into the structure by breaking the roof plane.

The exterior is maintenance-free. Western Red Cedar boarding will weather naturally over time, helping the house blend into its surroundings.
