The Hacienda, Contemporary Countryside House, Downton, Near Salisbury

Project Description

Striking Contemporary House in the AONB near Salisbury, Wiltshire

This has been a very hard fought approval, obtained by utilising clever detailed design solutions in order to overcome strong objections from the local representatives representing the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 

This stylish new home replaces a drab bungalow of no architectural merit.

Large expanses of glazing maximise the panoramic views across the countryside and allow light to flood the interior. The floor plan is specifically designed around these views, with the bulk of the open plan living spaces on the ground floor orientated to face the south and west, whilst the first floor plan allows each bedroom to gain an elevated perspective of the south facing views

A material palette of larch cladding which will turn a beautiful silver over time, grey brick and powder coated aluminium windows and doors give the building a clean crisp aesthetic.
