Youngman House

A home for a family of keen sailors on rural site in Bursledon, near to the river Hamble Marina where they keep their beloved 1952 classic yacht, ‘Lutine’.

The site extends from a lane towards dense woodland to its west, and the terrain also slopes southwards across its width.

Our design creates a series of single-storey pavilions that link together and extend into the site, enclosing a central, south facing, courtyard with a small pool and terrace.

The pitched roofed front pavilion contains guest bedrooms and connects to the main living wing by a glazed link that provides the main entrance. The living pavilion sits at right angles to the front beneath a mono-pitched roof that rises up to the north façade to clerestorey glazing, bringing a dramatic sense of space and light into the heart of the home.

The final pavilion is stepped forward from the living wing to enclose a central courtyard and extends further into the site, stepping down to follow the contours to contain the family bedrooms.
