Holtside

Planning permission gained for this green field home outside a Surrey Village in 2017.

Built into the hillside with a stream integrated into the building design, this home embraces and celebrates the wildlife of this beautiful site. The house is conceived as a fissure in the sloping landscape – an opening, like a strata of rock revealed by the hillside side but concealed entirely from the road

From the road, only a low dry stonewall and green sedum roof will be visible.  The house itself cantilevers out over the stream providing views of the countryside. It is a simple modest plan form that allows for open plan living areas that look out onto a sunken terrace and water features.
