Set in approximately four acres of idyllic landscaped gardens, the house was designed as a replacement for a farmhouse that stood on the original site.

Our paragraph 55 planning application for a new farmhouse and goat shed is now in for planning

The proposed strategy is a modern take on a water mill. It is proposed that the new dwelling is powered by the properties of the land itself. By harnessing the existing waterflow, enhanced with modern technologies, we propose a truly site specific sustainable home that returns the ecology of the historic water meadows to the site whilst providing a clean renewable energy source for the dwelling.


We love seeing the beautiful photos coming back from our project in Jackson, WY which is nearing completion!


Our proposal for a Paragraph 55 house in Devon is now in for planning.

The site is a garden without a house. The land was once an orchard abutting the walled gardens of a large country house.

We re-establish the historic fabric with a new house that takes inspiration from the walled garden. The walls of the original gardens inform the design, so that the proposed house is a walled garden of its own. Historic paths through the site are re-established and the garden planted once more.
