We have been approached to design a property to replace a derelict dwelling, on a site surrounded by woodland. Our reaction was to produce an L-shaped plan for a house house of two distinct zones: living and sleeping. A glass elevation to the living accommodation would be distinct from the cantilevered, shuttered concrete elevation to the more private sleeping areas.
Positioned in a clearing to the centre of the wood, the hard concrete aesthetic will provide a pleasing contrast to the soft, organic character of the site.
We are currently working up our concept sketches into a full Planning Application.
