These roundhouses were developed by the UK’s small house builder, Rotunda. Their size and form makes them perfect as a retreat or backyard studio. The designers were inspired by the structure of yurts and decided to develop the idea further and construct their own little circular dwellings with solid walls.
The company use’s locally sourced materials, supporting the UK’s supply chain without compromising on the quality or beauty of the spaces. Founder Gemma Roe says, ‘I just don’t think there are enough Roundhouses around nowadays. The rectilinear world is frustratingly dull and I just want to provide people with the opportunity to step into another environment for once to experience something a little magical’.
While rectilinear design is much more functional than a curved space, there is still something enchanting about cylindrical spaces and homes.
