Living Architecture

The Long House

North Norfolk

Traditionally crafted

Living Architecture is dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of world-class modern architecture and design.

Beautiful houses around Britain designed by great architects available to rent for holidays all year round. Working closely with the architects and production team, we are responsible for the procurement of all the furniture, lighting, kitchen and bathroom and bedroom linens from some of the most prestigious European brands.

Sir Michael and Lady Patty Hopkins Long House gives out on to the flat, almost prairie-like expanses of the Norfolk landscape and on the upper story, affords one views over the inlets, salt-marshes and creeks of the North Sea coast. The house is distinctive for its massive and traditionally crafted flint wall, which references the ancient churches and barns of the area.

The Long House has a great medieval-style hall in its centre and is capped with a vast timber roof, reinforced with steel cabling and trusses assembled into an intricate sculptural construction.
