About the project

Located on the edge of a countryside village, my Clients bought a small bungalow on a large plot which had the potential for spectacular views across the countryside. There was little merit in keeping the existing bungalow due to its layout, poor thermal capability, and the VAT implication of refurbishing and extending an existing structure.

The decision was made to start afresh and to demolish the bungalow to make way for a design of a new house that could provide my Clients with exactly what they wanted.

The site was analysed, the sun path calculated and the best views to the countryside agreed. The resulting design provides open plan living space to the ground floor that spills out onto private southerly gardens, with views to the countryside secured through the positioning of the bedrooms, balconies and viewing zones. A light well is located to the centre of the house to bring plenty of daylight into the ground and first floor areas.

Key Features

– Demolition and new build home

– Zoned open plan kitchen/living/dining area

– Mezzanine levels above the bedrooms

– Swimming pool heated by a GSHP system

– Balcony to the Master Bedroom with open countryside views

"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
