PRIVATE HOUSE: SILHOUETTE

PROJECTS


Design note


The existing property is a detached Grade II Listed Georgian villa in the centre of Cheltenham
which has a private tree lined garden that slopes away from the house towards the banks of
the River Chelt. The design proposal is for a detached three bedroom single storey dwelling
which will be cut into the sloped bank of the garden and will therefore have minimal impact
on the setting of the listed villa. The design philosophy is to reduce domestic references to
a minimum and with its dark stained cladding create a silhouette in the trees, and not a
house at all.

An application for Planning and Listed Building Consent will be submitted in July 2015.
