Long Reach , Long Marston

The proposed two storey house was designed to emulate the special context of this part of the village. The elevations have a horizontal proportion with low eaves with vertical counterpoints of chimneys, dormers and a gable which provides a visual termination at the end of the access drive.

The building is composed of Warwickshire red brickwork under a plain tiled roof. Stone has been used selectively for a base around of the house and up to first floor for the porch composition and the side chimney. The design is a modern interpretation of the vernacular architecture of neighbouring buildings. Modern attributes such as glazed French doors structural oak framing and simple single pane windows are subservient to the overall scale and massing of a traditional building form. The house creates a sense of place and feels comfortable in this attractive rural setting.
