A Self Build Architect Designed Home in Hayling Island…
With client Bentley Projects for architect, Ian Murray, in 2017 a design for his family home was undertaken as a SIP construction, built onto a first floor podium, constructed from masonry and beam & block floor. It was designed as first floor which looked out onto a sea view, heavily glazed to maximise the view. The roof panels were designed to overhang so that the interior was shaded from solar glare. SIP panels were adopted for the gently sloping roof.
hma was also commissioned to design a cantilever external overhanging balcony and internal mezzanine ‘bridge structure’ in steelwork directly with the architect. To make the bridge as slender as possible a firm favourite ‘hinged two span structure’ was adopted to achieve continuity in the bridge structure in 150mm deep steelwork.
The client was happy with the drawings and coordination which achieved this post fixed addition to the house.
