The preview of an architecturally exceptional build; using natural materials appropriate to its context.
This month saw the handover of an extraordinary flint and timber contemporary replacement dwelling.
Our client trusted Barr Group with this exceptional from-scratch build. The team have been privileged to work alongside Lee + Wilkinson Architecture to bring the project to fruition.
Barr Group were commissioned to build a highly energy-efficient contemporary residence and separate studio. Contextual materials include flint at ground-floor levels, with a combination of timber and metal-framed windows and charred (blackened) Accoya cladding to the first floor. A sedum roof blends the property into the hillside.
Landscaping follows the characteristic curves of renowned garden designer Ian Kitson. Corten steel and stone, embraced by a more naturalistic form of planting, offer carefully blended level changes, bringing the house and gardens much closer to the natural topography.
The internal layout leans in to the modern living concept. A series of interconnected spaces flow naturally from one to the next, with design-led cabinetry from Barr Kitchens and Barr Joinery enhancing every aspect. Astutely designed apertures beam shafts of daylight across the floors, walls and ceilings throughout.
We look forward to seeing full imagery of this wonderful project later in the summer.
