A pair of agriculturally inspired modern detached country homes in Lenham Heath, Kent.
These contemporary homes are reminiscent of a farm setting, but have been designed to reflect modern materials and detailing. The architecture draws inspiration from traditional gable forms to reflect and complement their rural environment, in addition to referencing the agricultural history of the site. Although the dwellings are generous in size, they were designed to ensure efficient use of space and locally sourced materials, allowing a more sustainable and cost-effective build.
The simple yet considered design, coupled with a sustainable choice of materials, meant that the buildings could be constructed within a 14-week programme, allowing for an efficient overall build.
