Description
This project involves the demolition of an existing chalet bungalow and the construction of a new replacement dwelling on the same plot. The site is located in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the existing house is currently located at the high point of the site, with Southernly views over a green valley and wooded area.

The project began with a feasibility study investigating four options for the Client to consider. Two options for the extension and refurbishment of the existing house, and two for a new build dwelling.

The chosen scheme was developed and planning approval was obtained on the first attempt. The scheme has since been split in to two separate parts; the replacement of the existing house with a new build contemporary family home, and the demolition of the existing stables building, to be rebuilt to form another new five bedroom home. Both schemes received separate planning consents and have been designed based on the guidance of the Chilterns Design Guide, with an alternative approach, using the traditional materials, but in a simple contemporary form and aesthetic.

The main house is a two storey double pitched gable roof with the walls clad in slim vertical timber cladding. A metal roof covers the building which features large open plan living spaces with views across fields and valley, a double height space which divides two first floor wings with a bridge linking the two. One side of the house contains the master suite, with the children’s bedrooms on the other. The stables building is currently under construction, with the main house set to follow.
