The client approached us to design a replacement home for his site in Suffolk.

The site slopes down to the south and west, with access being at the lower level, and heavy planting surrounding the boundaries.

The proposed design is a two-storey volume, which intersects with the
site. This lent itself to a ground floor entrance, with living spaces at first floor - this ‘upside-down’ living makes the most of the views whilst the sloped site allows level access out to the garden from the living areas.

The proposal occupies a similar footprint to the existing house, and the lower ground floor will contain car parking and ancillary spaces, as well as guest rooms.

The lower floor is of solid concrete construction while the upper floor is a lightweight timber frame containing the primary living spaces. Two children’s bedrooms are separated from the kitchen, dining and living areas by the entrance/staircase void.
