The owners' personality comes through in each room
Adrian James Architects for private client
Contract value: Confidential
Extensive earthworks were required for this curvaceous home’s terraces, creating shallow ramped routes that help it flow into the landscape.
Although the house could be considered large, its curved walls of handmade bricks and recessed mortar, and windows with frames set into the reveals, give an intimate feel to the internal spaces and unobstructed views out. This detailing offers a domesticity which feels modest in scale.
Each room is also individually styled so that the owners’ personality comes through and makes the property feel lived-in and loved.
The clients wanted a ‘lifetime home’ as they do not want to move again so there is space for a platform lift and wide door openings.
