Private Dwelling, Suffolk

Status: Completion 2015

Location: Suffolk

The ambition of the project has been to create a thoughtful new home that absorbs the rich architectural context of the surrounding buildings and combines them with a contemporary and generous standard of living. Rigidly adhering to a frame guided structure and plan, the accommodation seeks to open the interior to the beautiful open country side, whilst providing privacy to and from the nearby farm house. There is a rigorously sought simplicity to the layout which splits living and sleeping accommodation across the two distinct areas in the home, whilst always adhering and being reinforced by the visible framing devices within the dwelling. The result is a scheme analogous with the surrounding farm buildings that will perform to highest standards whilst allowing the future occupant the chance to enjoy a beautiful piece of the suffolk countryside.
