New Build House, Chilterns AONB - Thomas de Cruz Architects & Designers

New Build House in Chilterns AONB

Two storey new build house with part basement in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house runs widthways across a gently sloping south facing site. Full width glazing maximises the views over paddocks and a wood in the distance. The massing of the house is emphasised at first floor level, which cantilevers over the ground floor on two sides. Deep set windows on the first floor, and the overhanging cantilevers above the ground floor windows, provide shading on the south and west elevations.
