Stepping Stone House

Momentum worked with architects Hamish and Lyons to create this 150sqm 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.


Stepping Stone House has been shortlisted for a RIBA South Regional Award 2017.
