Thakken Cottage

Consultancy, 2019

Studio Wic was asked by Matthew Whiffen Architects to join a team of consultants with landscape designer Selina Botham to prepare designs for a paragraph 79 dwelling in the South Downs National Park.

The proposal is for a rigorously environmental, accessible home set in a naturally landscaped wild flower meadow. The building and landscape have been designed to create a tactile, sensory experience to physically connect the visitor to nature. The name derives from the Old English variant of ‘thack’ meaning a roof covering, which is a variant of ’thakken’ meaning to stroke or touch.
