NEW CONTEMPORARY HOME NESTLED AMONGST A STREET OF LISTED BUILDINGS
Our brief was to create a new bespoke 4-bed home within the grounds of listed building. It needed to fit into the street scene and have views over the westerly facing, open space to the rear. The plot fronts onto the High Street of this popular village in a conservation area. At the rear of the site, there is a well-used large public open space.
The historic street scene currently features many properties, built from stone, render and thatch. The challenge was to create a home that complemented the street scene yet can clearly be a new and valued addition.
Internally, the bespoke home features everything you would expect within a modern 4-bedroom home: open-plan living, light and airy spaces, and low energy usage. The key to the external design solution is to use traditional recognised materials from the street scene and surrounding rural setting. Our solution applies these with a simple, yet contemporary twist. This is clearly shown in the stunning Zinc roof design, featuring sharp edges and clean lines.
