Oast . KENT


ACME

Kent is characterised by rolling landscapes, apple orchards and oast houses, used to dry hops as part of the beer-brewing process.








Oast is a new building in the protected countryside and has been designed as a 21st century interpretation of the formal language of Kentish architecture. A radial plan in which four towers are slightly pulled apart balances the requirement of external views with a form that reinterprets the oast typology. Smaller windows perforate the building’s conical form, and a central glazed connecting space houses the public living functions. This allows for 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside, whilst more private requirements such as bedrooms and service spaces occupy each tower. For landscaping, an orchard once present on the site is reinstated.
