Modern interpretation of the the 'family house' that allows for flexible living on a compact site

The design of the Hunt House is based upon the idea of the integration of both ‘the terraced house’ and ‘modern living’. The house tries to utilise the established street geometry for the composition of its facade, replicating the width and scale of the existing houses, yet maintaining a modern approach to allow its entrepreneurial client maximum future flexibility.

The internal layout allows pools of light to filter through the dwelling at key points through carefully positioned floor to ceiling glazing and roof lights creating delicate areas of interest within the home environment.

The dwelling, constructed from a Structural Insulated Panel System, consists of a lower ground floor home office with utility room, toilet and separate entrance. An open plan first floor leads out to a decked terrace area. The upper floor contains the main bedroom with dual balconies, bathroom, and central glazed roof light leading up to the roof terrace offering panoramic views across Sheffield.
