Construction of a new home for a private client to replace their existing chalet bungalow in quiet private lane in Farnham, Surrey
The site, while a simple rectangle on plan, slopes down considerably from the road level and the new design takes advantage of this to step down from the front of the house (entrance hall, reception and utility room) to the rear of the house to give the open plan kitchen / dining room and adjacent TV room / snug a more generous ceiling height.
Designed using traditional double pitched roof form the dark timber cladding and crisp white render are complemented with dark bronze coloured window frames, rainwater goods and fascias.
The symetrical roof has been created as the road itself south to north and the lowered eaves to the north ensure that from the neighbour’s view the replacement house has no impact on theie view of skyor created an unacceptable loss of daylight. A detailed Daylight Impact Assessment was carried out using 3D modelling software to create Waldram Diagrams and to ensure that the Visible Sky Component and Annual Probable Sunlight Hours remained above the BRE recommended impact limits.
