New build – Private House
Permission for a replacement dwelling was obtained to a definite brief from our clients calling for a dramatic increase in the size of built form. The Planning Committee were convinced by the concept of recreating a traditional farmhouse with a nearby barn. In this case the two new buildings were linked by a glazed block containing the swimming pool and leisure facilities.
Although the house echoes the form and materials of a traditional British farm, the details and stonework, hand crafted in India, reflect the cultural heritage of the clients, and the building provides a successful synthesis of both cultures.
