For :Private client
Size : 450m2
Budget : £500.000
The project is set in close relation to Burrowfield House, an existing country house originally surrounded by a garden within the Somerset open farmland. The new residence will preserve its original domestic dependency, while assuming its dominant presence in a more urban context. The open existing spatial organisation of the land highlight the qualities of gardens with a clear formal plan, and define a diverse set of spaces. Our project amplifies this impression so that the presence of existing walls, the slopped ground and the magnificent trees are the beginning of a rich network in which the buildings take part. The project is perceived as a dependency of the former Burrowfield estate and the new office and workshop within the project are further dependencies of the new house. The new proposal also orientates the views towards the inner courtyards. Each courtyard relates to the function of the buildings they connect, the gardens are seen as a continuation of the different buildings.
