following the lie of the land while remaining cognisant of existing boundaries, hedgerows, trees and levels onsite, this modern new split level living space extension seeks to create a distinct visual and dynamic separation between old and new, while maximising the available sunlight and projected orientation towards views of the distant landscape.

This hilltop design with panoramic views over a nearby lake required minimal excavation works onsite, and the use of hipped pyramid shaped roofs helped to blend and otherwise bulky mass seamlessly into its surroundings.

Both raised bedroom wings radiate from a central focal point kitchen & family space, and onto a separate lowered living room block towards the front maximising stunning views of the landscape.
