The Sett

A new build house on the Isle of Wight

This new-build house in an orchard provides a family home for a writer and designer.

The timber-clad house is designed as a series of layered spaces that extend into and around the fruit trees, creating deep thresholds between spaces both inside and out. These deep thresholds provide a spatial generosity within the quiet form of the house.
