The client for this amazing new home in Teignbridge had already tried to gain permission to build a 2-storey house in their Grandparent’s garden without success. Their planning consultant suggested they contact Living Space to help them design a house that was more suitable for its beautiful landscape setting.
The resulting design with its curved green roof sits gently in the hillside without drawing too much attention and is completely at one with the landscape. It uses sustainable technologies such as an air source heat pump for space heating and has very high levels of insulation. The timber cladding and curved glue-laminated timber beams were sourced locally and natural materials used as much as possible. We thing its the perfect family home!
