As a replacement dwelling, our client had requested a very practical design which would make the most of this sites large garden views and sun path, so as to have as much natural light as possible within the main living spaces. A strong family base, this home ADMS were briefed that this home should be both a place of social interaction, as well as providing quiet study spaces, playroom/s and integral storage spaces within its floor plan. All this was achieved by the design. In addition to this, it was our suggestion that the existing stone barn buildings, which had fallen into some disrepair, within the site be retained and the siting of the new dwelling be placed so that a rear courtyard would be created. This has also now been realised and has proved a worthy element of the completed dwelling.
