Phil Darwen Design has designed the Serpentine House.
This hilltop location cried out for a structure of unparralleled design and unique liveability. The house itself contains virtually no straight walls and instead consists of generous curves and sinuous connecting arcs to create a unique courtyard style design. The entry boasts a crescent shaped intrusion of the courtyard water feature which, due to the curved glazed wall, proceeds seemlessly into the central courtyard. Every room in this house allows views out to the sweeping vistas that this location presents while the inward sweep of the central spine hallway takes in the water feature of the courtyard. With generous use of bifold doors, entire spaces can be opened or closed to take full advantage of the breezes and the pop-up hat roofs of the pavilions allow for increased cross ventilation. This home is a stunning residence that combines sweeping architectural lines and light filled living spaces.
