Background

This property was inspired by the light and space of a woodland clearing. The house is full of curves and wonderful framed views of the parkland setting. Large expanses of glazing transform the views and emphasise the dynamic relationship of the building with the landscape. Constructed innovatively and economically by using curtain walling sections, each glazed façade contains heat mirror film; a transparent film which minimises the heat entering and leaving the house through the glass. The approximate floor area of the 2-storey, steel frame construction is 380m2 . The house includes a large open plan kitchen/dining area, 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a lift.
