New Build Farmhouse in Wiltshire

Replacement farmhouse nearing completion. Planning permission for this house, which is in open countryside, was secured in part by mimicking the prevailing building type in the Wiltshire countryside, which is large simple form agricultural sheds. The timber clad ‘frame’ creates a simple form and long, low silhouette in the landscape, similar to the agricultural buildings, which are very visible due to the openness of the Wiltshire landscape. Subordinate elements, such as the cantilevered dining space, are set within the dominant frame to maintain a simple silhouette.
