Whipsnade House

One-Off Houses

Surrounded by breathtaking British views, this modern dwelling remains sensitive to its location.

Located on the chalk escarpment of the Chiltern Hills looking northwards over the Aylesbury Vale with far reaching panoramic views this fabulous site sits adjacent to the listed Lubetkin houses and required a responsive elegance befitting of this truly unique site.

Influenced by the chalk white local stone and the charm of the historic white Lubetkin structures, our design seeks to cantilever and sit offset from the ground, projecting towards the view, utilising simple panels of glass, solid and opaque panellised facade system.

Corten and exposed concrete detailing to the ground connections emphases the light cantilevered floor and grounds the design.
