Superhomes - Living Spaces
This project was a unique opportunity to create a new house on one of the most desirable mature landscaped locations in Cheshire. Calderpeel worked closely with the client and interior designers Weeks & Cowling to deliver a high quality architectural solution, maximising the secluded garden space and presenting attractive elevations of limestone, glazing and white render.
The design is a direct response to a stunning site, resulting in a blend of traditional architectural language and the best of contemporary living spaces to provide a romantic family home.
The overall appearance is a contemporary house, with a slightly lower garage and pool to the east and north. The well-proportioned windows that puncture the facade connect the inside and outside spaces whilst retaining simple and elegant forms.
The ground floor boasts a stunning double-height entrance gallery leading onto an open plan living space with areas for entertaining, indoor and outside dining, a retreat, snug and family room.
An inside/outside double height room is provided at the south western corner to provide a living space that benefits fully from the landscape in which it is situated.
A palette of materials dominated by brick provides elevations of modern design but historical references. A low pitched slate roof, animated with chimneys, provides a simple yet elegant form. Large glazed openings dominate the elevations and connect the interior with the garden, whilst timber screens provide shading and cooling when required.
