About the project

Currently on site this new build house sits on an exceptional site overlooking Southampton Water and the New Forest beyond.

The house is designed around a 3 storey central glazed staircase, with four distinctive elements, forming the habitable spaces of the house. Only the central area is raised to the third floor, to appreciate the views west from the house. The garden is enclosed with a single storey linked swimming pool which runs along the Beach Lane boundary.

The ground floor is open plan, containing the lounge, dining room and kitchen. The garage and self-contained suite form the frontage elements. The first floor has an open landing lounge serving the four bedrooms with a further staircase to the master bedroom on the top floor. Each element of the building has been designed with simple facades and a projecting flat roof, with double height glazing and rendered walls. The overall mass of the building is broken by the elements of the building, set back in different planes and broken by glazed areas.

Project Value: £750,000 / Client: Private / Stage: On Site
