A Grand Design

We were approached by a customer who had bought a plot of land with a 1980s bungalow on it who asked if we could design and build a contemporary house and garden for them with some “wow” factor. The resulting building has a front facade which is striking and unique whilst not out of place in the street scene, utilising a clay renovation tile and a modern pre-coloured render finish. The back of the property has a quite different personality with lots of glass and a continental “resort” style courtyard landscape integrated with the indoor space. The use of water close to the building with the resultant movement and reflections is particularly effective, whilst a small front courtyard garden gives a more intimate space to sit and enjoy the sunshine. A simple palette of travertine tiling and natural wood floors throughout along with lots of natural light make the house a friendly and warm place to live and entertain.
