Contemporary Home Design Of Castle High, is located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The traditional Welsh farm is centered around a courtyard, providing protection from the constant South-Westerly Atlantic Storms, that push over an ancient landscape. The abandoned farm buildings themselves remain relatively unchanged since the early 1800’s.

The practice was approached to refurbish the outbuildings and provide a luxurious and practical contemporary home design to replace an existing out-dated and 1960’s house.
Our proposal would complete the courtyard and provide a sustainable lifestyle for the family, by utilizing passive architectural strategies and low carbon technologies and a deeply rooted poetic response to place.

Contemporary Home Interior Design Ideas
The new luxurious contemporary home, itself is built from white fair-faced concrete, inspired by the enduring nature, of a smooth pebble found along the shoreline. These glacial debris reminds us, of what mass can endure through time, yet it still feels smooth to the touch.
The plastic nature of concrete, also allows us to push limits not allowed by stone. Creating a simple language that recalls, the deep brooding reveals of farmhouse windows in the region.

The exposed site calls for a building material, and stereoscopic language, that can endure years of constant erosion from driving wind and rain. Early farming acknowledged, the fundamental necessity, to turn away from the wind, to create a habitable environment, to cultivate crops and protect farm animals.
Our home contemporary design proposal, reinforces the defensibly of the existing outbuildings, and reawakens an otherwise sleeping courtyard.
