We helped the client knocked down a run-down cottage and helped them build a contemporary single-storey home which the agenda of making the most of its stunning surroundings areas. ‘The house was falling down, and the garden was completely overgrown and full of oak trees.’
The main focus of the new single-storey house is a glazed open-plan kitchen/dining/ living space with folding-sliding doors that completely open up the corner of the building closest to the oak tree. A glazed link entrance hall connects this to the bedroom block, where the master bedroom includes an unusual, fully glazed shower. Materials used for the interior, such as the timber flooring, are replicated outside to enhance the indoor-outdoor feel.
