Winchester-based architect group AR Design Studio created the new Black House in Kent, England. This private residence features a unique contemporary design that draws influences from both modern and historic buildings in the area.
The mass of the home is a large rectangle shape that is divided into blocks that all have a view of the pool and a large populus tree. Each block in the rectangle is linked to a different aspect of the garden, separated to create a courtyard in the center of the home. With multiple levels, the exterior of this home gives off a hard geometric feeling, with a contrasting interior filled with soft colors and large windows.
The dramatic Black House in Kent, England boasts some of the best aspects of contemporary design.
