Our client’s requirement was for a large new house and outbuildings on a rural site. Although large, the house is simply detailed with restrained, domestic scale and proportions.
The two wings of the house are linked by a fully glazed gallery landing, top lit by a glazed lantern. Semi-circular bay windows allow maximum sunlight into the principal living areas and take full advantage of extensive views over the landscaped garden and lake.
The result is a very ‘English’ and timeless country house which integrates with its surroundings. A screen of woodland ensures privacy from the nearby road.
