This project involved the construction of a new bespoke house for a private Client on a spectacular hilltop site in Caldy with views over the Dee Estuary and to Snowdon beyond. Working closely with ShedKM architects Joule designed an insitu concrete building with flat slabs and incorporating concrete filled slender steel columns to make the most of the views from the open plan living space. The setting out of the building on the site creates a dramatic cantilever to the external terrace as the hillside drops away.
