This replacement dwelling is located within a historic walled garden and takes its inspiration and detailing from that of a Georgian dower house.
Stylistically referencing other nearby landmarks the proposed new house directly responds to context; both as part of the nearby historic country estate & Parkland and its immediate setting as part of a private residential street.
The proposed garden room creates a largely transparent link between the main house and the walled garden, as well as linking to the ancillary garage wing. Its contemporary ‘floating flat roof’ pavilion aesthetic with its roofline sitting below the height of the historic garden wall helps to ‘hide’ the additional space it provides and sits as a point of contrast to the traditional detailing of the main house.
Many potentially challenging negotiations took place during the planning process due to the setting of the house and the proximity of key designated heritage assets, with Guy Taylor Associates working with the client and key statutory consultants to produce an elegant family home for the 21st century which sits respectfully in its setting.
