New country house
This new family home has classical proportions and details coupled with a butterfly plan to maximise sunlight throughout the day and taking full advantage of the views of the lakeside landscape to the north. The brief called for an indoor pool at basement level which was set into the landscape but could enjoy plenty of natural light. Our solution was to introduce a sunken garden on the south side of the pool. The design incorporates the use of the latest sustainable technologies and low-tech passive solutions to ensure the energy demands and carbon emissions out perform current building regulation requirements.
