On Architecture was commissioned by an established developer to design two one-off luxury modern detached country homes in Lenham Heath. The contemporary homes are reminiscent of a farm setting but with a modern interpretation. The form of the buildings draws inspiration from traditional forms to reflect the surrounding context. There is an eclectic mix of buildings within close proximity to the site. The proposals include various characteristics which draw inspiration from the historical narrative of the area, which help further anchor the buildings and provide visual interest in the area. Although the buildings are generous in their space, they were designed to ensure efficient use of that space, allowing the developer to derive best value from the construction. The simple well thought out design, coupled with the meticulous choice of materials, meant that the buildings were constructed in a 14 week programme, allowing for an efficient and cost effective overall build cost.
