Backwater

In a lagoon in the middle of Norfolk Broads National Park, you will find Backwater, surrounded by water on three sides. The building, which consists of three main spaces, is clad in traditional timber shingles. Its pitched roofs will remind you of the boat sheds common to the area. To the water side, the building opens out to its surroundings with large window fronts. Their wide overhang gives the impression that the roofs are folded around each buildings and also form a sheltered outdoor seating area. The layout of the interior design is built around the three spaces. You enter the house in the sleeping wing with a total of four bedrooms on two floors, connected by an elegant spiral staircase. In the middle wing there is the kitchen with access to a veranda. Adjacent to this space, you enter into the double height living wing with its seating area at the fireplace and study area. If required, the living and dining area can be separated by sliding doors. The muted colour scheme of the interiors creates a subtly restrained backdrop: the focus is placed on the stunning view of the lagoon.
