Friends Lab House by AMPS
Alexander Zaxarov
Apr 13, 2020

Set in beautiful Hampshire, the brief for this project by AMPS was to design a cottage where friends and family could spend long periods of time just next door to the prime residence within the existing Farm.

With the image in mind of the double-pitched black timber cladded barns and the existing farm´s stable yard building, we engaged in a reinterpretation of the design.  Of vital concern was to set the architecture within the surrounding landscape in a natural manner. A similar formal and colour approach to the existing Farm was used for the design of the new house, but reinterpreted in a thoroughly contemporary way, from structure to finishes and importantly, a very high level of energy efficiency.
