This new build country house near Hawkhurst, in Kent, hopes to provide the best of both traditional rural tactility and modern contemporary living. The design had to fulfil a number of stringent planning requirements before receiving final approval, with the council requiring the building’s aesthetic to more closely resemble the traditional timber and brick houses of the locality. After a long iterative process, the design evolved into a suitable reinterpretation of the vernacular.
Large glazed screens allow light to flood the interior spaces while framing the astounding views of the surrounding woodlands. The purple-tinted brick and weathering natural larch will, in time, blend into the surrounding tones.
“Through several projects, we have always been impressed by the knowledge, diligence and professionalism of the team at InsideOut. They overcome difficulties with inventiveness and flair and, to top it all, they are really nice people to work with.”
