New house, Great Shelford

This new house was created for clients who were downsizing from a significantly larger property: it was important therefore that the house should feel spacious and be able to accommodate many of their most treasured items of furniture.

Whilst their preference was for a classic property built in high quality traditional materials, including Bath stone and Welsh slate, our clients appreciated the qualities of light, spatial flow and simplicity that characterises a more contemporary aesthetic.

The connection with the landscaped garden was very important: we designed the main living space with extensive glazing, relating to the different ‘exterior rooms’, that surround it on three sides.
