M2r modernises the country life

M2r Architecture has won planning permission for this spectacular private house just outside Sevenoaks in Kent.

The 320m 2 modern home - designed for a private investment banker - will be set over two levels and will cost £600,000.

The scheme, which attempts to respond to the surrounding rural landscape, will consist of four bedrooms, two living rooms, one bathroom and a kitchen and dining area.

The project is designed so that each floor is connected with the landscape and embeds the house in its site.

A statement by M2r - a small young practice set up in London in 2001 - said the designs were inspired by the surrounding countryside.

'Sevenoaks is an idyllic suburban area south of London and the ideal location for our private house, ' the statement said.

'It is a very steep site, and existing trees and magnificent views towards the landscape shape the proposed design, ' it added.

The private house project received outline planning permission in January 2005 and construction is scheduled for completion in early 2006.
