Silver Birch

A new-build four bedroom detached home, built on the garden land of a notable early 20th century old vicarage, with strong arts and crafts influences.

Sensitively designed to sit within a conservation area designation, responsive to the form and scale of its neighbours, while still achieving the clients contemporary vision.  

Maximises Natural Light

The steeply pitched roof gables are the dominant feature of the principle front and rear elevations; carefully arranged to reduce the overall massing of the building. The large triple glazed windows maximise natural light and take advantage of long range rural views.

Open Plan Living with Inclusive Design

The house was designed to suit the needs of family life with plentiful open plan living spaces on the ground floor, and large private bedrooms on the first floor, whilst boasting inclusive design to suit wheelchair and ambulant users. 

Designed with Sustainability at Heart

Silver Birch has been designed with sustainability at its heart, with opportunities to increase the biodiversity value of the site by planting new native plant species. The house incorporates serum blankets to its flat roof surfaces to providing an enhanced habitat for bees and insects. A mechanical ventilation heat recovery system maximises the building’s thermal efficiency, minimising wasted heat energy. This use of responsibly resourced materials reduces embodied CO2.
