The Kench by Meloy Architects

“This beautifully detailed little summer house sets a new standard for construction quality and finish. The modest building has been carefully planned due to maximum floor space restrictions; the designer is forced to become more creative with their space saving solutions. It is a good example of how to make the best possible use of a limited area.
 
The rooms are arranged in a way that makes the most of the views over the Kench. This building sits very well in the setting of the other chalets and the landscape, and has become a popular addition to the site.
 
The attention to detail is exemplary, especially the tiling in the bathrooms, somehow resembling a 3D puzzle. The brief (which we understand arrived in a jiffy bag as a model) is executed perfectly, and this is reflected in the level of client satisfaction.” The Kench is on the longlist for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Manser Medal 2014 for the best new house or major extension in the UK.
