Shortlisted projects announced for the 2015 RIBA London Regional Awards for Architecture
Vaulted House (a flagship Ithaca Roofing Project) has been shortlisted for the RIBA London Regional Awards for Architecture.
The six roofs, each topped by a skylight, are lifted above the enclosing boundary wall. This creates a sense of weightlessness and a borrowed panorama of neighbouring gardens. The hipped roof’s sloped planes join precisely to form a series of large coffers or ‘vaults’. These vaults spatially define and individually illuminate various parts of the open plan main living space; kitchen, dining and living areas.
In two places, the vaulted roofs are absent, leaving two storey deep voids that act as garden courtyards for the basement level bedrooms and children’s playroom. Glazed walls slide back to expand the living space onto balconies that project into the voids, formed from perforated mesh. This material and its careful detailing creates beautiful shadows on pristine courtyard walls.
