The design for this 500msq (5,500ftsq) replacement dwelling not only relates directly to the clients brief, but was also inspired by various site features.

An existing turf maze generated the curved plan, which radiates from a contemporary pond feature. The impact of the new dwelling upon the site and its neighbours is reduced by using softer curved walls. This shaping also allows the house to face south, towards the existing mature garden, which contains numerous 'protected' trees.
