Project: 2 Family Houses – Staunton on Wye
Client: Private Individuals
Main Contractor: JDW / Owen Pell
Structural Engineer: C2 Designs
Photography: Jim Hicks / Jay Watson
Contract Value: £320K / £160K per house
The project brief was to create two modern, sustainable family homes for private clients on a small site at the heart of a thriving Herefordshire village. The houses needed to meet the demands of modern family living on a modest construction budget, while using natural materials to sit gently within the rural landscape. A highly insulated timber frame structure was chosen to reduce site time, as well as pre-finished cedar cladding and high performance pre-glazed composite windows. The kitchens and sanitary ware, shelving and built in furniture were all chosen from standard ranges and cleverly adapted to create an interior experience that belies the budget.
