The Black House

We worked with the client from the outset to produce a coherent design for a number of extensions they wanted to facilitate their family as they grew up. A large open plan space was the core requirement for this new large family home, set within a fruit growing area of Kent. The material palette was formed from the local farm buildings to bring about a harmony to the built form as it grew. Long views over the local area were an important part of the design and helped establish the home into its landscape context. Once planning was approved we undertook the technical design stage for a local contractor to complete the construction under the direction of the client as a self-build project.
