The Narula House sits on the banks of the river Loddon, a tributary of the Thames near Wargrave in Berkshire within a flood zone. John Pardey Architects designed a solution which places the house on stilts, raising it by 2.2m above the 1:100 year plus predicted Climate Change flood level.
The house ‘floats’ across the site as a single, linear form, designed around a central courtyard space. To one side of the court lies a large open-plan living space looking across to the river. To the other, a generous circulation space runs along the north side of the house with a study, media room, utility spaces, cloakroom and three bedrooms with en-suite. A brick chimney, with barbeque at ground and first floor levels combined with a woodburning stove in the living room, anchors the house to the site.
Our Oak engineered flooring with a brushed and limed finish has been used throughout, complimenting the Oak storage units which lines the north corridor of the house.
