Forbes: Elevated and Raised Homes

Hind House, Wargrave, England

Why Elevated: Flood risk, scenic views

This architectural gem lies on the banks of the Loddon river, near Wargrave, England. The steel-framed home, built in 2008, is raised on columns to withstand occasional flooding. The architect John Pardey describes the home as being designed with ‘wings’ connected by a central hall leading to a deck.
