Description:
The house seeks to define a modern aesthetic for a traditional cottage form. The existing building on the site was demolished and the new building sits on the existing footprint. Located in the Cheshire green belt the house occupies a large site which contains well maintained gardens and green space. The project includes an ancillary building containing a swimming pool, gym and photographic studio. The pool is located away from the house to ensure clear views into the garden and the uninterrupted countryside beyond. The arrangement of house and pool create an informal garden enclosure which forms a transitional paved terrace area leading into the less formal landscaping. Extensive glazing at ground floor level allows flexible interaction between house, pool and garden. A more free flowing timber form houses a gym which is clad in timber to link the building into its context. The main focus of the house is its roof. A simple structure of timber and steel allows the roof to float over the forms of the house. The spaces in the house are planned to maximise the view of the garden, with the elevation to public courtyard more solid in its elevation and forms.

Awards:
What House Award Winner 2014
Description:
This is a development of high quality family homes. The client's commitment to good design has created a new and positive contribution to the area whilst still complementing the existing residential context. The houses are well proportioned, using a pitched roof with single storey extension to the side which ensures that the design references traditional house forms. In acknowledgment of existing surrounding properties the development uses a limited palette of robust materials of red brick, stone features, zinc cladding and aluminium window framing. Depth is brought to the elevations by the use of deep reveals with the windows being set within the brickwork to enhance the contrast of light and shade.
