Zumthor lands go-ahead for revised Devon holiday home

Peter Zumthor has won planning for substantially revised designs for a ‘secular retreat’ for Living Architecture in Devon

The Swiss Pritzker Prize and RIBA Gold Medal-winner landed planning consent earlier this month with smaller plans for the high-profile holiday home. An initial version was approved in July 2011.
Zumthor’s latest 365m² concrete and glass design features five bedrooms with an open-plan living room and landscaping.
The larger, 430m² original concept included a music room and separate parlour and kitchen dining room.
Living Architecture creative director Alain de Botton said the scheme was altered in line with the architects’ desire to make it ‘more spartan and monastic’.
He told the AJ: ‘At one point, the house started growing a music room, Zumthor imagined that a string quartet might visit the house and practice. But with time, he changed his mind and returned to what had been an earlier, purer vision.’
He added: ‘It’s not a coincidence that Zumthor has built so little in his life; he really is a master craftsman who wants to get every detail right.’
Replacing a two storey 1940s brick house in Chivelstone, the single-storey scheme is expected to start on site in February.
Via.

To provide a megastructure as a connection between old and new district in the monumental city such as Seville, we propose A systematic guideline instead of A single building.
Icons are abstracted from monuments and then converted into 3 dimensional blocks. Blocks are arranged into the linking space linearly but randomly according to the requirement.
