Holmewood, Marlow /
This house is on a private estate set in the Chiltern Hills. Approached through mature beech woods, it lies at the head of a gently sloping south facing valley.
A dramatic axial sequence of spaces links the entrance hall to the principal reception rooms via a covered central courtyard. Guest bedrooms face onto a sunken garden.
The simple axial configuration of the house means that the development is legible, and creates a tremendous sense of space, whilst the graceful curve of the roof acts as a unifying feature.
