New house in the garden in Bideford
Maximise your garden plot by creating a new house
We worked closely with our clients on this project, who were keen to maximise their large plot by building an additional home but were also mindful of retaining the character and beauty of their garden.
We looked to create a form that complimented the immediate environment and also remained in keeping with the building style of housing nearby. Any designs also needed to be achievable for the owners to self-build as they were considering this as a construction option.
To investigate this further we devised a series of sketch concepts. These tested the massing in context, which looked to reduce the overall prominence of the building through key design decisions and went on to inform the final proposal.
