A House for Essex
A new build house of extraordinary design built at Wrabness. The design by FAT Architects and Grayson Perry with Living Architecture Ltd as the client, is a totally unique house.
A house only available to rent as part of the Living Architecture concept of bespoke Architect houses for short term rent. Find out more >
Externally the building is clad in ceramic tiles as rain screen cladding over a masonry structure.
Aurubis gold sheet copper metal roofing.
Whilst a ‘simple structure’ there is little room for tolerance with ceramics being ‘unforgiving’ and the building is adorned with statues and sculptures enabling the building to be a totally unique building in the countryside.
The house is very highly engineered with fittings and furnishings internally that are more akin to the theatre.
It depicts and talks the story of Julie Cope an Essex girl and her travels and life through Essex.
