Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire
This contemporary residence, set in the heart of the Chiltern Hills, was built from scratch by the Barr Group, in conjunction with expert contract administration from Knight Frank residential building consultancy.
The rural sloping site was astutely utilised through the positioning of the entrance hall, sleeping quarters, gym, garage to the upper floor and fully glazed open plan living spaces below.
Specification included extensive excavation, a waterproof concrete and tanking membrane system and a steel portal frame supporting floor to ceiling architectural glazing.
