PROJECT

Sevendials is located in the small village of Mottram St Andrew, in the north-west of England. Nestled in the green of a hill, this private villa is surrounded by a garden where, between oak and birch trees, one can enjoy a wonderful view of the Cheshire county, in North Wales. Sevendials is a luxurious house, the L-shaped plan seems to have been designed to embrace the sunset, while the roof, which serves as a terrace, prolongs that dialogue by offering a further space for outdoor living and creating an area of conjunction between domestic and outdoor life, between architecture and the environment. A dialogue between interior and exterior made possible also by the large windows that welcome natural light and the landscape, bringing them inside the house itself. The living space is divided on two floors, over an area of over 600 m2, including an office, a relaxation area and a suite for guests. A large zinc cantilever porch runs along the entire length of the structure, providing protection from sunlight in the summer months, but at the same time allowing the low winter rays to penetrate undisturbed. Light and nature come and go through the large windows, infusing life to every object and bringing the landscape inside the house.
