London based architects dRMM have designed a Sliding House in Suffolk, England. The brief was a self-build house to retire to in order to grow food, entertain and enjoy the landscape.
The outcome is three conventional building forms with unconventional detailing, radical performance, and a big surprise. A linear building of apparent simplicity is sliced into three programmes; house, garage and annexe. The garage is pulled off axis to create a courtyard between the three. The composition is further defined by material and colour; red rubber membrane and glass, red and black stained larch.
