Modern design incorporates a mixed living approach
David and Jennifer’s core passion for oak shows through the presence of unusual angles and interceptions of beams throughout the timber framed homes. The split level houses accommodate a mixed living approach, having living spaces both upstairs and downstairs.
Clear, full height space, from the ground floor to first floor ceiling is achieved through a ‘floating’ first floor that doesn’t extend to the eaves. Light is free to travel between the floors creating an open, uncluttered atmosphere. From the upstairs living area, the view out to the surrounding countryside is softened by the underlining moss cedar roof, which appears to seamlessly blend in with the distant landscape.
The highly insulated SIPs, combined with triple glazing and a Genvex air source heat pump provide an energy efficient design. A log burning stove, rainwater harvesting system and low energy LED lighting also contribute to their green credentials.
