Normanton on Trent

About the project

My brief was to create a ‘forever’ home that would provide my Clients and their family with a home that would last them for the rest of their days. I was asked to create a layout that was flooded with natural daylight. A layout that was open plan in nature but zoned so that each area had an identity. Sleeping accommodation was to be located on the first floor. But they also wanted a bedroom suite to the ground floor for guests and for themselves in their latter years.

My design incorporates all these desires and also takes full advantage of the views the site enjoys across open countryside and a large garden field where the Clients keep chickens, ducks and a selection of other animals.

The front of the site is accessed off a lane where the semi-private drive and garage is located. The rear of the site is private and has been fully opened up with glazing and full width door openings to connect the interior of the house to the garden and fields beyond.

Key Features

– Forever home for all the family

– Layout to harness natural daylight

– Open plan layout

– Ground floor bedroom with en-suite

– 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
