NEW HOUSE, EDWALTON
The design of this stunning contemporary house near Edwalton is nearing completion.
At the heart of the client’s brief was a desire to provide clean lines and open plan design; along with the need to operate their boutique business from home whilst separating it from the day to day running of the house.
First floor bedrooms benefits from fabulous distant views across the south-facing courtyard whilst the north side is bathed in light thanks to the glazed strip that runs the length of the corridor roof.
The structure will be mainly timber with light-weight cladding and steel structure where there are large openings and cantilevers. A combination of air and ground source heat pumps will provide the heating and hot water, whilst the fabric will be super-insulated to minimise running costs.
Estimated construction value - £475,000
Duration - 10 months
