About this project

Our clients bought this former bonsai tree nursery in the green belt with a view to building their dream home in the country. They appointed Moon after a scheme for a traditional house developed by another architect was refused planning. We developed a modern design taking its lead in terms of form and materials from the traditional buildings in the surrounding area. This was supported by the planners and approved unanimously at committee. The house is split into two separate pitched roofed forms linked by a glazed entry hallway. This approach allows the mass of this large house to be broken up and sit discreetly in its setting. The open plan living/kitchen dining space has large sliding doors capturing the views and allowing the space to spread out into the garden. Upstairs is a boutique master suite that spreads out onto a large roof terrace.
