The subtle, stacked limestone house is a contemporary reinterpretation of a traditional building. The design responds to the clients’ brief for a warm, intimate family home with a sense of establishment. Distinguishing a main house from the modern extensions employs a zoned planning strategy to create a feeling of hierarchy through the spaces.
The front house embraces the proportions of a traditional Victorian house to create intimate spaces and the unique detailing draws from the decorative techniques and quality craftsmanship of that era. Delicate stonework, fine metal gate, concrete lentils and vaulted ceilings create a distinct initial impression.
