Making the most of a challenging sloping site to create an elegant yet functional classic home

The architecture of this dwelling was based on a style familiar to the Regent’s Park area of London. A striking and wonderfully elegant form, the dwelling echoes the inspiration of that luxurious area it set out to. But perhaps the intangible beauty is that it is a very green house with thick walls, twinned with a fantastic heating system, means a dramatic cut in energy outgoings.
 
Aesthetically and functionally the main objectives were light, space, contemporary living and a canvas for the pieces of art accumulated by our clients over the years. It is a house built and designed for them with very few areas not used on a regular basis.
 
This is certainly a very sociable home. The expansive open-plan main living space is intelligently designed to accommodate entertaining both indoors and out, and the flexibility of the kitchen itself lends itself to outdoor soirees even more with a moveable section to slide where you need it.
 
The house is fully fitted with surround sound and a multimedia and cinema room located below the kitchen.
 
Outside, the whole site is on a slope so it was challenging to come up with a working plan. There are four ‘areas’ to allow an alternative feel at various times of the day and in different weather. There is a major south-facing tiled terrace for barbecuing, dining al fresco etc. An artificial putting green at the north-facing aspect, a west-facing elevated gazebo for watching the sun set, and, finally, an accessible balcony off the master bedroom that is perfect for sunrises, sunsets, and views over the local park. The low seating walls around the patio reflect the architecture of the dwelling, and a modern log pile fire provides a wonderful setting.
