We are excited to have been appointed to create a new country home set on the edge of a wood near Guildford in Surrey. Our site visit last week revealed the brick building nestling in hue among the autumnal colours of its surroundings. From the views towards the garden and beyond, the feeling is as though the house is nestled deep in acres of fields and woodlands. The land is also home to a variety of wildlife that includes red foxes, deer, badgers, and rabbits. The upcoming design process will explore how the building can make most advantage of its extraordinary views and connect with its verdant surroundings.
