Northend House, Buckinghamshire
This old farmhouse has a generous garden and while the existing building has a lot of character it is now too large for our clients. We developed designs for two new modern cottages in the garden so that they can remain part of the village community as they grow older. We studied the local vernacular to enable us to design buildings which are modern in detail, but which reflect the materials, form and character of the surroundings. This approach has been well received by the local planning authority.
