New House Southampton

The brief was to design a large family house in a traditional style. The clients had specific requirements and wanted four reception rooms, seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a home cinema, wine cellar, gym and sauna. Four of the bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms had to be of equal size, for their four children.

Initially, the clients had asked the architects to design a Queen Anne style house but this had not been favourably received by the planners. The architects then designed this Arts & Crafts style house, and the clients are delighted with the result.

Various techniques were used by the architects to make this large house feel homely. The traditional double-glazed metal windows were set into reconstituted stone sub-frames and all of the joinery was carefully detailed in oak, including the double staircase and balustrading.

A glazed cloister links the house to the garage, gym and wine cellar and creates an intimate courtyard space at the side of the house.
