Perched on a limestone cliff on Gower Peninsula, the Silver House brings medieval craftsmanship to the modern day. The home's foundation takes inspiration from the historic architecture in the region by employing the ancient technique of dry-stone walling and houses a recording studio. The upper level is clad in timber and topped with a mono-pitched roof. A warm interior palette comprised of exposed timber beams, wood floors, and ceilings contrast the dark facade, while full-height glazing floods the space with natural light. A cantilevered deck expands the upper level over a reflecting pool, affording views of Oxwich Point and beyond.
