Purcell unveil contemporary suburban home
September 18 2015
Arranged around a feature chimney the home is entered via a wide angled doorway offering views of ground floor spaces and leads into an open plan kitchen and double height living room. An oak, open tread staircase ascends behind the chimney toward the bedrooms.
Utilising traditional materials the home makes use of a Scottish larch timber clad dining room projecting from the rendered main block and connecting to the garden pavilion opposite.
Diana Borland, senior architect at Purcell commented: “From the early stages of emotional mapping and the intrinsic involvement of the client in the design process, we knew that we were creating something special. The house is a haven of openness, space and stylishness and sits in a league of its own in its suburban setting.”
Designed to create a light and airy feel the property is heated with an air source heat pump and rooftop photovoltaics.
