Here at Urban Front we work on some phenomenal projects but not all of them are located in as beautiful and naturally stunning a setting as this one. Contemporary living on a hillside designed by Gillepsie Yunnie Architects. 

You can read all about the house at www.gyarchitects.co.uk under projects but here is a little synopsis of the architects description:

'The house has a linear form relating both to the long quayside and terraced fishermen's cottages on the opposite bank. The dramatic cantilevering terraces required a steel frame and intricate detailing to maintain airtightness and thermal performance. The stonewalling was locally sourced and provides contrasting weight to the reflective zinc soffits and fine framed glazing.'

The front door is a bespoke take on our Terano doorset with vertical stainless steel strips and a wider vision panel. The European Oak works very well with the 'dry stacked' stonewalling and zinc detail.

Door Detail: Terano Special e80 in European Oak with Option 11 handle.
