New build, contemporary home in Surrey Hills near completion

A 400sqm new build, contemporary home in Surrey Hills is nearing completion on site. The design of the house forms a courtyard to provide privacy and frame the views. Key to the design is the journey through the home, with views out to the beautiful surroundings.

Working between hand drawings and CAD has always been important to me. It allows freedom and experimentation. It focuses the concept and helps me develop ideas and decide what materials will work together. An early concept of the elevation explores materials, natural and local to the site - from clay in the ground and timber in the surrounding woods to glass used near the site from an old glass factory.
