  • one-off houses

Located in an area of good size plots with 250-500m2 housing stock our clients sought not size but quality. In depth briefing analysis and the client clear intent to work together to design a new style of house which would be enjoyable, unique and worthy life time living was central to their requirements. The building would be set back into the plot allowing for glazing all round on the ‘public’ ground floor. The first floor requirements were for full height glass to bring in light but to maintain privacy whilst creating a striking form. Our solution was a first floor metal ‘mesh’ which extends up to become a balustrade to the master suite on the 2nd floor. Simple, elegant and timeless design.
