We’ve found this water side house, a unique contemporary private homes is situated on a secluded lagoon in Wroxham at the heart of the Norfolk Broads.

Designed in 2016 by Platform 5 Architects, this timber framed house “sits on a small promontory in a secluded lagoon in the Norfolk Broads and offers a contemporary counterpoint to more traditionally designed neighbouring houses, while respecting the peaceful natural setting.”

“The three pitched roof bays, echoing the form of local boatsheds; each bay has a different internal volume and offers framed views of the lagoon. The house is clad in western red cedar shingles, a traditional material forming a unifying ribbon element that emphasises its classic Broads silhouette. On the southern, lagoon elevation a deep canopy creates a sheltered outdoor area where you can enjoy a gin & tonic on a warm evening even in the rain. Inside you will find a sleek, comfortable well-equipped home.” said the architects.
