The existing house was dark and cold and the client wanted to use their south facing plot to build a house that was the antithesis of this.
We have designed a light 304sqm 4-bed home which maximises the views from the family rooms and roof terrace. A three bay cart shed stands adjacent to the house.
Design: the materials used combine a warm pallet based on a traditional theme with a contemporary edge. The timber cladding is used to suit the tree lined site.
Challenges: planning constraints provided a challenge because the site is in the rear garden of the existing house. There were also challenges to solve with regards to highways and access.
The project received Broadland District Council's Design Award (Best Individual House) 2017.
