House 784 in Cheshire, UK by Stephenson ISA STUDIO

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Stephenson ISA STUDIO

The house is sited on a tree lined suburban road in Cheshire and was designed for a young family couple. On the road, the house types are suburban; conservative, bland and mock traditional. Our approach was to create a fresh contemporary version of the suburban house type; one that reacts to its context and is tailored to suit the specific needs of the client.
