To an architect the prospect of designing a new luxury house is like an artist being handed a blank canvas. There are infinite possibilities at the outset but they must soon give way to the rigorous and informed process of actual design.. In this case the client wanted to achieve a visionary contemporary house with light airy spaces which combined the right balance between closed rooms and areas of open plan. Because of the need to screen the proposed building from neighbouring properties and maintain privacy, the best way to organise the site soon became apparent. Related to this the topography and orientation of the site were also key factors in the way the form and organisation of the building were devised.

A aspect at the conceptual stage of development of the design was to incorporate double-height spaces in the central living and entrance areas. We paid particular attention to the relationships within the various spaces in the house to meet the functional requirements of a family home. The scheme also incorporates a separate study and office above the double garage.

The design was developed using computer visualisation so that the client, sitting at his own computer and in his own time was able to explore the building as the design developed. This made it possible for him to follow the course of the design closely and to give us valuable feedback.

The project has recently been submitted for planning permission and we look forward to the stage when we shall prepare the detailed designs.
