The brief for this project was to create a contemporary, single storey timber house hidden in the trees for a modest budget. The proposed scheme is a 3 bedroom property with internal and external courtyards to maintain privacy whilst connecting the internal spaces with the external garden and maximising natural light.
The design for this project was driven by the site constraints. The site was long and narrow with neighbouring gardens to each boundary and surrounded by trees. The design maintains privacy for the client and neighbouring properties by camouflaging the house between the trees, and with all windows facing into internal and external courtyard.
