Private Home, Norfolk

Brief: To design a contemporary new 4 bed 360m² dwelling in a tree lined rural site to the south of Corpusty in Norfolk.

Design: designed to have no impact on the surrounding countryside, the elegant roof form follows the site contours to ensure the dwelling merges with the natural landscape and maximises the views and natural sunlight.

The vertical properties of the design (glazing, cladding and roof) take inspiration from the trees with the new dwelling much more in keeping with the surrounding residential properties.

Environmental: The dwelling will be highly sustainable with ground source heat pumps, high levels of insulation, a timber frame construction and the use of natural materials such as copper roofing, timber and cedar cladding and lime render.
