Two connected buildings built on either side of a garden that can be occupied as one home or two
The home can be used flexibly to accommodate the changes in circumstance of the occupants over a lifetime. It can be used as one large dwelling, a home-office, or two smaller houses.
The two volumes are linked by a ramp, which sweeps the full length of the plot. Materials within the house were designed to be 'raw' with concrete and oak floors, unpainted plaster walls and steel stairs.
Cargo Fleet is clad in cor-ten steel and larch. Cor-ten was chosen for its natural beauty, its association with the industrial landscape, and its ability to represent the passage of time.
