    Construction

    Oak and softwood framing with brick and stone outer skin

This Kent New Build is a sophisticated blend of contemporary and traditional design. It has been constructed using an oak and softwood frame and enveloped in traditional masonry external finishes. The U-shaped plan is orientated around a central double-height spine with reception spaces flowing out of this space on the ground floor and bedrooms leading off the glass balustraded gallery above.

Vernacular Homes was involved from the earliest stages of this project. The client had located a site for a replacement dwelling and asked Vernacular Homes to design and build their new house. The client had very specific requirements and carefully chose all internal and external finishes to suit their taste with much time spent considering the layout as a whole and ensuring the suitability of individual room sizes for their intended use.

The depth of consideration given to the design has resulted in each room having its own individual character. The oak frame intersects the spaces in a variety of different ways and adds to the intimacy and human scale of these spaces.

The traditional elements of the design are contrasted with high ceilings and expansive areas of glazing which create a strong relationship with the landscape.

The property benefits from high levels of insulation (a mixture of extruded polystyrene and loose fill products). Combined with the installation of a ground source heat pump and underfloor heating, these highlight the project’s combination of traditional construction and contemporary approach.
