12 Bank Hill

About the project

My Client wanted an ultra modern open plan house with cantilevered floors and double height spaces. They also wanted the house to visually and physically connected to their gardens and the countryside beyond. One of the Client requests was for a bespoke staircase that rose up through the double height space. With the help of a glass specialist, I’ve designed a stairs that will appear to defy gravity with the steps floating between two sheets of very strong structural glass.

The site is located adjacent to the village of Woodborough’s conservation area and so this was always going to be a challenge with the planning department.

I designed a home that ticked all their boxes and also negotiated the planning system to gain the planning consent my Clients need to turn their dream into a reality.

Key Features

– Ultra modern house design

– Glass staircase

– Open plan layout

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
