Stonehurst emerged after the original 1950’s bungalow was demolished. A 5-bedroomed, single-storey structure that has been designed with free-flowing spaces rather than rooms, and divisions rather than walls. An abundance of glass sequences the views over the south-facing gardens and the valley beyond.
Great care was taken to limit the impact of the house on the landscape; the materials were chosen to blend the structure into its rural setting, with hardwood cladding that quickly silvers to complement the local limestone. It was designed to be a sustainable, low energy home with triple glazing, a heat exchanger and airtight building construction.
Our open dialogue with the client was critical to the exceptional beauty of the finished result, and the client understood how the budget was being used at every step of the process.
