The common areas outdoor gardens and walkways between the two structures serve a space for relaxation while the new interior makes up in style for what it lacks in sheer volume.

Creating an aesthetic connection between a 100-year old farmhouse and a smaller modern outbuilding that has been built far more recently is a tricky task that requires attention to detail.
Designed by PDP London Architect the projects consists of a series of 28 independent homes and villas that form a secure and beautiful little community surrounded by panoramic landscape.
On the lower level a neutral color scheme metallic accents a smart staircase connecting it to the bedrooms above and a rejuvenated kitchen and dining area set the mood. Opening up into the lovely backyard the breezy indoor-outdoor interplay of the Brunswick House puts a smile on your face.

The new upper level with its vertical batten cladding and steel frame around the windows gives the rear façade a distinct identity even while creating an efficient and cheerful interior.
