Project Description

Striking modern house in the AONB, Wiltshire.

This has been a very hard fought approval, obtained by utilising clever detailed design solutions in order to overcome strong objections from the local representatives representing the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The new modern house will maximise the views across the countryside and replace the existing drab bungalow using a material palette of cedar cladding, grey brick and powder coated aluminium windows and doors.

Strategically positioned timber louvres prevent a great deal of light pollution from the building whilst still providing unobstructed far reaching views across the valley and beyond. 
The floor plan is specifically designed around these views, with the bulk of the open plan living spaces on the ground floor orientated to face the south and west, whilst the first floor plan allows each bedroom to gain an elevated perspective of the south facing views.
