For many parts of the world, seasonal flooding is something that people have to learn to deal with it. The design team at John Pardey Architects decided to build this beautiful, contemporary residence atop a set of stilts to help combat the regular flooding in the area.

Residents located in specific areas of Berkshire, UK know all too well the issues associated with regular flooding, and the Hind House was built with immunity in mind. Located on the banks of river Loddon,  the elongated dwelling was completed just a few short years ago in 2008. The home features a wood cladding facade paired with massive windows that open up to the lush green landscape.
