Set in the prestigious, private location of Kingswood, Surrey, the majority of developments in the area are mock Georgian with grand classical portico entrances, the area is designated as an ‘area of special character.’ The design is a contemporary outlook providing a light filled, spacious home to fit with current modern lifestyle. To have a presence within the existing streetscape’s vernacular, a framed entrance portico pronouncing and celebrating the entrance invites you into a central double storey glazed atrium hallway. The glazed atrium transmits and spills light into the surrounding spaces. An obscure glazed bathroom stack light feature, provides a feature to the front facade, compositionally, further pronouncing the relationship of the house to the streetscape.
Programmatic spaces, light filled and spacious, cater for comfortable large scale family living. The rear of the property opens up and enjoys the stunning views to the rear of the plot, a number of viewing vistas are formed through the composition of architectural elements, and expansive glazing links the internal and external creating a flowing transition.
