Name: Wedge House
Designer: SOUP Architects Ltd
Location: Surrey, England
Wedge House is a minimalist house located in Surrey, England, designed by SOUP Architects Ltd. The architects were approached by clients looking to unlock the potential of a backland site set in the rear half of an existing suburban garden in Surrey. Their brief was to create a contemporary house for 3 generations of their family.
The design uses the irregular shape of the existing garden to tuck the proposed house into an unassuming triangular pocket to the side of the garden that maintains long views from the main house. The proposed house is orientated to minimize overlooking to/from an apartment development to the East and maximizes afternoon and evening sun by being orientated West.
