Swallow Hill

Treuddyn, North Wales - March 2012

Client: Mr Ron Davies & Dr Margaret Huish Davies

Architect: J M Harrison

Manufacturer & Main Contractor: Kenton Jones

This single storey private dwelling sits in open farmland with glorious rural views in all directions, which the open plan interior fully exploits with extensive glazing.

The three bedroom home comprises of a series of interconnecting bays. Arranged over a single level, the house has a study, hall and open plan kitchen diner that links directly to the lounge. The house makes the most of passive solar, with rooflights offering natural light deep into the plan. The white marble finish results in a bright, contemporary interior.

Construction took place in wintry conditions, but despite high winds and frost, it took just one day to erect the frame. It was imperative that the flat roof was made watertight.

The speed of the build astounded the client and the resulting light-filled home is a testament to the flexibility of the Tŷ Unnos system. The single floor level means the owners have a fully future-proofed house which they can enjoy with their grandchildren.

The contract was to supply and erect the frame and panels.
