Hulcote House - Bedfordshire
Located on the western edge of rural Bedfordshire, this site has a beautiful stream and surroundings. Our proposals included recreating of woodland environments whilst also making landscape improvements by demolition of the existing farm / agricultural buildings provides a net gain and improvement of landscaping and providing 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 provide a hidden gem within the countryside.
