A long-term client of the Practice sought a new contemporary property outside the village boundary in the Wylye Valley, Salisbury, using Bath ashlar stone and zinc. The design and choice of materials was praised by the planning officer and local residence. The design approach has been to create a form of vernacular architecture through simple forms and undecorated openings using Bath ashlar stone walling to the font elevation and render to the rear and sides. This has enabled a contemporary feel without the need of brick quoins or decorative detailing replicating the early 19th century random coursed stone rubble walling of the surrounding properties.
