contemporary new build
A proposal for a new modern home to occupy an overgrown site that was used for detached garages for nearby flats. The single storey proposal uses traditional materials to complement the surrounding Victorian properties, but is contemporary in terms of form and internal layout. The L-shaped building wraps around the north and west edges of the site, creating spaces that have southerly and easterly aspects out towards a landscaped courtyard. The proposals include the installation of a ground source heating system which would produce up to 75% of the property's yearly hot water requirements when combined with solar hot water panels.
