House Llandudno

Bomax Architects

Journeying through the landscape to the front door of the house, was a great introduction to what was yet to come. At House Llandudno one is met by contemporary architecture, by a form of clean-cut concrete tapered structure that captures uninterrupted views from the living spaces of the ocean, It also creates a sheltered outlook from possible weather conditions of the Atlantic. The living room flows out towards a rim-flow pool and a roof garden which creates a two-part division of the house into the main house and an annex, whilst creating a great breakdown of scale between the two parts of the house.

Throughout the house, a sense of minimalism is picked up as one journeys through the spaces, from the materiality of the house and how it sits within its landscape. The immediate links inside and outside created a great sense of a play with scale, this was experienced throughout the whole house from shared spaces to private spaces.

Although conflicted the house’s sustainable response to the site, the sustainability mentioned draws more emphasis on the technical aspect of the systems used to enhance the living conditions of the house, and this could have also been naturally achieved architecturally, which makes the building well worthy of a commendation.
