8 Acres, Surrey
Our favourite type of project, creating a lifestyle in nature. A full glass wall gives the feeling of living in the landscape, reinforced by the use of simple natural materials on this magnificent eight acre site in Surrey with its own mature scots pine forest and giant redwoods. We achieve our philosophy of "tread lightly on the land". A challenging planning permission achieved by trading outbuildings around the site with the planners to achieve the floor area in the sensitive Green Belt. It has a full basement leisure area with swimming pool, fitness and thermal suite and cinema. We carried out extensive thermal analysis to ensure the correct construction was chosen to achieve comfort and energy conservation. A 2.7m cantilevered roof shades the glass from overheating in the summer sun. Currently under construction.
