Our brief was to design a new build family home on a green field site that is modern in character but blends in within the vernacular style for the rural area.
The developed design is a two storey house constructed in two distinct blocks with a double height glazed element linking the two and providing the vertical circulation. All buildings feature pitched tiled roofs. The block which fronts the public road is finished in a white render, evoking a traditional farm house. The block to the rear of this is finished in stone, reminiscent of traditional farm outhouses.
The building is orientated to maximise sun light depending on the use pattern of the internal rooms through the day.
