Bank Croft

New-build detached dwelling within the grounds of a working farm. The land sits on the edge of the village settlement boundary within the conservation area and Area Of Natural Beauty.

The design has contextual references to historic long barns prevalent in the area (Kennexstone) and is sympathetic to the surrounding forms of agricultural buildings.

Limestone, larch, oak, ash, birch, glass and steel appear internally and externally throughout the house. Drama is created with the use of double height spaces, floor to ceiling doors, a mezzanine level, window seats and balcony spaces. Sustainable energy sources feature within the build, including Air Source Heat Pump, PV’s and a charging point for an electric car.
