The Round Tower / De Matos Ryan

The Round Tower is a Grade II Listed folly, which had been reduced to ruin by years of neglect and fire. Located on the crest of a hill overlooking Siddington Village, the exposed site is visually integral to the setting of this listed structure. As such the design approach maintains the open relationship with the surrounding agricultural landscape by developing a discreet and substantial underground extension to the tower. This underground extension [De Matos Ryan] provides the main open plan living spaces and is lit by both a central open sunken courtyard and a lateral landscape scoop concealing the new swimming pool and associated sun terraces from public view — via ArchDaily
