The headline to the clients brief was 'traditional Georgian architecture fit for 21st century living'. A great deal of time and care was taken in researching Georgian principles of design and details, and in research of materials.
Portland stone was detailed for the plinth, window and door surrounds, quoins, string and cornice course. Working directly with the quarry 16A Architecture detailed over fifty individual stones and provided co-ordinated stone layout drawings as part of the construction design package.
Whilst the main body of the house is finished in render the garage building is constructed from clay facing brick in flemish bond with lime based mortar. Again
portland stone details follow through to this building. The garage building features a traditional archway which both serves as an undercover parking area giving access to the back door but also as the access to a traditional farm courtyard area.
