Over The Edge is a minimalist house with a cantilevered corner - architecture and design

Over The Edge is a minimalist house with a cantilevered corner



The ground appears to have fallen away beneath this minimal house, designed by architectural designer Jonathan Burlow in Kent. 
Over the Edge is the first completed project by Burlow, who recently set up his studio in nearby Folkestone.

It takes its name from a subtle cantilever in one corner of the building. From some angles it's barely noticeable, but from others it creates a dramatic effect, as if that section of the house is hovering above the ground unsupported.
"The landscape falls away beneath the cantilevered edge, giving the impression of being lifted from the ground," said Burlow.

The project began with a small, single-storey bungalow. The client asked Burlow to significantly extend the property, creating a larger kitchen, but also to create space that could function as a studio for painting. The extension increases the property's size from 62 square metres up to 97, and changes its floor plan from a rectangle to an L-shape.

A polished concrete plinth provides the floor of the extension, and also continues outside to create a simple patio.
The topography of the surrounding garden varies ? at some points it's level, at others it's set down below. It is this, as well as a clever step-back detail in the concrete, that create the cantilevered corner.

The design takes its cues from 18th-century grain store buildings that were once common in this part of England. The floor would be raised up from the ground, to protect the contents from rodents and floodin...
