The brief for this scheme was to design a large, luxurious, contemporary six bed family home. The Client had been to our website and contacted us after being inspired by another project of ours, Seven.
The house was to be approx. 8,000sqft, set over two floors and follow the modern ‘Arts and Crafts’ style. In addition to this, the Client wanted a crisp, clean cut contemporary styling internally. This informed the design of the external fabric and themed internal layout.
The site sits within designated “open countryside” and had the benefit of an extant Planning Consent for two new build dwellings, of approx. 3,500sqft each. We felt our Application for one dwelling would sit well with the neighbours and the Council would be supportive.
This luxurious home features a top-of-the-range automation system and the use of renewable energy and sustainable drainage makes this one of the most sustainable and technologically advanced homes we have done to date.
This luxurious home will have a top-of-the-range home automation system and will also employ the use of renewable energy via Ground Source Heat Pumps in the large surrounding gardens; solar panels will to take advantage of the South facing orientation of the rear elevation.
Power harnessed from the renewable energy sources will be used to heat up water for the underfloor heating system and other appliances. The dwelling will also feature a sustainable drainage design, by installation of soakaways to drain surface water naturally.
The ground floor includes feature entrance with highly glazed porch opening to the upper floor as an atrium, feature staircase and wow gallery, triple garage, large kitchen / day room, utility / boot / dog room, cloaks / WC, media / cinema room, snug, formal lounge. Gym with steam / sauna / shower.
The first floor includes large master bed / his and hers dressing with large feature en-suite, bed two with en-suite and dressing, three further bedrooms with dressing / en-suites, self-contained guest bedroom over the garage. Feature terraces off master and bed two.
