The Ramp House

29 September 2018 (13.00 - 17.00)

30 September 2018 (13.00 - 17.00)


An award-winning architect�s own two storey wheelchair accessible family home and studio on a tight urban site based around an unfolding 28m long ramp. It has resulted in a design that is both open plan and complex, with spaces connecting whilst still feeling separate and able to be used for different purposes. A restrained front fa�ade using stone and shingles contrasts with the copper clad playful forms of the garden fa�ade.

The building was designed for and was designed with, a young wheelchair user.
