Hive Architects Studio Ltd.
New build bespoke dwelling. Working on a fairly steeply sloping site with various constraints this design provides contemporary accommodation spread over three storeys. Working with the topography, retaining walls and tanking provide a two storey home presented to the front but an additional third lower level storey to the rear. Natural light was critical to the brief and informed design throughout. This was particularly the case in the entrance hall which was to be the focal point that would link the various elements of the home together and so setting the tone here was critical. The design aspirations were high but the budget very modest so care and consideration were needed to deliver the client goals within the limits. Project was delivered for approx. £1000/m2 which given the product is excellent value for money.
