Chestnut Grove : Suffolk

The brief was to design a replacement contemporary dwelling within a beautiful 7 acre woodland site. The design represents a 90% increase in floor area to that of the original cottage.

A transparent central ground floor maintains views through a grassy woodland glade, down a steeply sloping site to open country side beyond. Timber sourced from the surrounding Chestnut Wood will be used as external cladding.

Passive environmental design principles have been incorporated into the site including the specification of ground source heat pumps.
