Tranmere House

This house on two levels, takes full advantage of it’s dramatic location on the shore of the Derwent River. The upper floor level steps down to maximise visual connection to the nearby rocky shore with most areas having expansive views across the river to the City and Mountain backdrop.
A central deck is stepped with internal living areas and separates public and private zones in the house. In response to the very exposed nature of the site, the deck is protected on three sides with a sliding glazed screen on the river side to complete protection form prevailing winds.
