Contemporary Suburban Home

Finding a suitable plot to build can be a challenge, sometimes the answer is right on your doorstep! That was the case with this project, having a designed a contemporary extension to their existing family home 10 years ago, we were pleased to be commissioned to design  a brand new house in their garden.

The initial  brief was for something fairly traditional, and we successfully obtained detailed planning consent for a new house on that basis. However a change of heart on the client’s part led to a much more contemporary approach being taken. Their taste for mid century modernism influenced  the  new design which explores a subtle interplay of horizontal and vertical elements  with a crisp form but a simple, buildable plan.
