Meadowcroft in Hampshire, UK by OB Architecture

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Article source: OB Architecture

The brief required a large contemporary family house that would take advantage of the lovely views over the fields and the Solent beyond.

The site lies within an Area of Special Character that is made up of predominantly traditional pitched roof houses, so the design of the new house had to mediate between the clients’ desire for a contemporary house and the planners’ requirements for a pitched roof form. The design also had to appear modest from the front to respect the 2-storey properties either side.
