The new house follows the pattern of development in the estate of 1.5 storey double pitched detached houses by being parallel to neighbouring buildings with the gable wall facing the road. Due to the angular plot size at the road frontage, the building was split up into 2 halves of monopitch volumes, staggered in plan and height.
The 2 volumes are articulated in different materials of white render and brick.
The building is constructed in a single leaf of concrete blocks, with external highly efficient insulation. One side is then rendered and the other cladded in brickslips. While giving a traditional appearance of render and bricks, this method reduces all cold bridges as otherwise associated with traditional cavity wall construction.
The rear kitchen space projects out with a large corner glazing system. The 3 track sliding door can be opened from both ends allowing 66% opening space.
The roof over the ground floor projection is finished in zinc metal with zinc gutters / downpipes. The bedroom windows have deep recesses to prevent lateral overlooking.
Bedroom window with deep recess.
The landing is designed as a play area for the 3 children of the house. It is open to the dining and hall side.
The dining space with ceiling pendant is in elegant double height, connecting the downstairs with the upper level.
The wide hall is a double height space. High level windows give great light in the bedrooms.
Double bedroom with corner window, built in wardrobes and en-suite.
