Pavenham House - Bedfordshire
Located on a hill side sweeping down to the conservation and beautiful village of Pavenham in Bedfordshire, this site with its skyline of trees and adjacent to the village stone delicate historical buildings led to an opportunity for a house close to the road, but related to the farming escarpment.
The house was inspired by the ridge and furrow on the historical adjacent land and also the use of the farming plugs. The plough wedges of the design cut in section in to the land to provide the basement and extend to the sky like plough blades/fins to provide shading and enclosure.
This outstanding piece of architecture provides and innovative and unique solution to the site whilst also being enhanced by landscaping which cossets the scheme within this elegant location.
