Located on the western edge of rural Bedfordshire, this site has a beautiful stream and surroundings. Our proposals included recreating woodland environments whilst also making landscape improvements with the demolition of the existing farm / agricultural buildings. This provided a net gain and improvement of landscaping and allowed for a high level design quality single dwelling in open countryside.
The design driver was to allow the building to flow out from the landscape and provide a geology-based inspiration in its tectonic and geological forms. Utilising local materials and drawing upon the benefits of a significantly enhanced landscaping solution locally to the dwelling and to dozens of acres around, provides a holistic solution which allows the built form to settle in the landscape and become a hidden gem within the countryside.
