Hurst House by John Pardey Architects and Strom Architects

Hurst House — located near the village of Bourne End in Buckinghamshire, England –  is a one-off contemporary house designed by John Pardey Architects, in conjunction with Strom Architects. Something like an architectural equivalent of a Swiss Army knife, the residence was designed with the family’s changing needs in mind; as the children grow up and leave the nest, spaces can be extended or shut-off depending on the circumstances. Drawing on a predominantly rectangular geometric design base, Hurst House also fronts an area of open fields that form part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding National Beauty — a rare designation in England that attests to the site’s particular beauty and value. With this in mind, the architects paid special attention to sustainability and a sense of harmony with the house’s natural surroundings — materials are locally-sourced, from local Weston Underwood coursed stone to naturally-weathering British Sweet Chestnut — and due to its stellar insulation attributes along with high-efficiency, low-energy fittings, Hurst House is close to being a zero-carbon home.
