Location: Ashford, Kent
Architecture: New build ecohouse
The brief was to design an eco-friendly, contemporary, three/ four bedroom house, in a Conservation Area, close to several Grade II listed buildings.
The prefabricated nature of the house, locally sourced materials, grassed parking, and facilities for an electric car and an integrated bike store will enhance the ‘green’ features of the house, helping to further reduce its carbon footprint.
The contour of the proposed building blends in with the surrounding planting in a variety of dynamic shapes and angles, reflecting the appearance of organic structures such as treetops and hedgerows. To accentuate this effect, we employed the use of natural finishes such as timber cladding for the walls and cedar shingles for the roof.
