Hucclecote house

The House in Gloucestershire, England is a 40 meter long space which is fully open at each end and divided in the middle by a utility room which falls short of the ceiling, to let the ceiling float over, uninterrupted.

To the east, it opens to the garden, where the sloping curved wall is the graduation between structure and nature.

In contrast, to the west, the space opens to a high walled private courtyard and garage.
A shallow water pool at each end cools the space, especially when the large sliding doors are open in the summer.
