At Thinking Buildings we believe that the architectural style of a building should be appropriate to the context and to the client brief and, as a practice, we try not to impose or develop a single aesthetic and appearance to our designs. This gives our practice a diverse and rich portfolio of projects.
The featured project is a new build 4 bedroom 3-storey house in a village conservation area, located adjacent to a Grade II listed building. This design uses a familiar palette of vernacular form and materials to help integrate it into the historic surroundings. The design focus has been to achieve an attractively proportioned form with well-executed details, such as the ashlar stonework detailing to the raised gables and kneelers. The client is self-managing the build and hopes to be complete this summer.
