Architects Hamish and Lyons worked with Momentum structural engineering to create the Stepping Stone House in Maidenhead, United Kingdom. The home, which hovers over a man-made lake, links the old with the new as it is an extension to a traditional, older Manor.

The home has already received an award from Iconic Architecture and shortlisted for a RIBA South Regional Award 2017. Now, it has been shortlisted for the 2017 World Architecture Festival awards in the Villa category. A look at the following images and you’ll see why.
This 150 sqm multi-room garden house extension in the gardens of Hurley Manor House, complete with play room, living area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.
A Glulam primary structure set on a steel deck and stilts over a man made lake, the house presents a contemporary alternative in contrast to the period property to which it is linked.
Designed with exposed timber and glass, the structure offers a fluid and open plan living space that grants optimum views across the lake and gardens.
A decked walkway provides access between the two separate living areas, whilst a glass corridor bridge links the extension to the existing house.
