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.
