Project Details
  • Title: OldTown
  • Status: Planning Granted 2013

With this site located with a dense forest as a backdrop, we were keen to use timber cladding to the façade of the house. Green corrugated metal sheeting to the main living block also assists in blending the building into the forest backdrop. The scale of the living block along with the green corrugated cladding will replicate the form and appearance of small scale farm sheds in the immediate vicinity of the site giving the building an instant grounding and connection to its surroundings. Interventions on the existing landscape will be kept to a minimum with narrow gravel lanes providing access to the site and the retention of all mature boundary landscaping and hedgerows.
