Our solution

Taking references from the existing Courtsole farmhouse and local villages, the design and layout of the proposed residential units have been carefully considered to respect the form, style and materials that are commonly found within the surrounding area.

The design draws on a clear hierarchy of buildings from the large barn, the smaller granary building, to smallest buildings of the stables and stores which, as an ensemble continue the language of the surrounding countryside.
