Hampshire-based Re-Format has won planning for this £1.5million house near Farnham, Surrey
Described by the architect as ‘a carved timber edifice contained by crystalline rendered frames’, the 950m2 house will replace an existing home on the site.
The project, which also includes a glazed pool house and an office, is set to complete in June 2016.
The architect’s view
‘The design, conceived as a carved timber edifice contained by crystalline rendered frames to create a set piece design within a highly cultivated landscape setting, capturing distant views over Farnham.
‘The masonry fireplace punctuates the frame to provide a threshold between the living room and kitchen / dining space and acts as a counterpoint to the timber and render elements’.
