Design Summary:

The site is located within the Metropolitan Green Belt and AONB, which meant that the scheme must be of the highest quality to be a suitable addition to the locality.

Intended to replace an existing 2 storey house that was situated in the large site, the scheme was designed to make use of the steeply sloping change of levels creating a building that is situated within the hillside and faces out with long distance views of the unobstructed countryside.

The architectural design is contemporary in a style which was specifically chosen to suit the Client’s particular tastes for their personal use.

The scheme was granted Planning Permission in 2015 and completed on site by Crush Building Services.

This scheme was created whilst as a part of the team at OPEN architecture
