New Beveridge House

Big hoosThe house site extends to 34 acres in all, with the actual house plot sitting within a clearing of around an acre looking over the fishing pond. The house lies within the former policies of Rachan estate and makes up a large proportion of the plantation forestry, established as part of the estate management, after the war.

Using a palate of materials such as polished sandstone, stained western red cedar and large areas of glazing, we have created a contemporary individual house design. The house consists of two distinct wings centred on a courtyard, with the double height entrance tower creating the hub between the wings. The south west facing courtyard will be the centre of the formal garden, overlooking the pond,  with the surrounding landscaping blending in to the forest beyond to minimise the impact of the house within its setting.

The south wing mainly incorporated the living spaces with a double height space to the core of the wing bringing in light to the heart of the plan. The north wing includes the majority of the bedrooms and ancillary accommodation. The house will be purely heated from a ground source heat pump incorporated into the garden ground.
