A New Start

A new build home for the 21st century, in the garden of an existing house.

Due to the tight nature of the site there were many planning issues. After a lengthy process, approval was granted and works could begin.

The new build, single storey, steel framed dwelling was designed around an inner, smaller bath house, a timber box with concealed doors and a large single aperture with views orientated towards a skylight.

The main living spaces are open plan, arranged around the inner bath house, with sliding glazed partitions to alter the relationship of sleeping, living and entertaining areas. The modern design by Independent Architects called for sharp, precise finishes -- which is what we provided.
