The existing site comprised of a rather neglected 1950’s bungalow which was demolished. It was replaced with a stunning contemporary house which could fulfil the needs of a growing family.
The project brief was to link the new build with the existing well established landscape whilst providing the clients with terraced areas, a large vegetable and fruit growing area and a good sized lawn.
With a noticeable level difference across the site it was important to create a space that co-existed with the house, we achieved this by introducing gentle terracing which opened up to the garden.
The main retaining wall which faces the bedrooms, incorporated a tranquil water rill which flows the length of the building.
