Green Haven : Contemporary Dwelling

This unique project in Bingley presented a fascinating architectural challenge. Our Client wished to develop an existing single storey 1 bedroom dwelling into more generous living accommodation over 2 floors. The existing dwelling had little architectural merit although was located within the setting of Greenhill Hall, a grade 2 listed building. The challenge was to develop a building of Architectural merit that contributes more positively to the character, distinctiveness and significance of the historic environment. AV Architects, in liaison with the Client and local authority planning and conservation officers and using careful design and a palette of modern and traditional materials, developed proposals with distinctive character, a subtle contemporary architectural language that remained sympathetic to the wooded landscape.

The predominantly glazed Northern fa├žade provides a sharp contemporary feature in lightweight material that reduces the perceived mass of the building and presents the opportunity to reflect the wooded landscape, a mechanism to blend the building within it setting and reduce the visual impact. The modern glazing has been applied in conjunction with timber and stone products that sit comfortably in the natural wooded setting and will age and mature developing a distinctive character sympathetic to the landscape and respectful of the heritage setting.

We particularly enjoyed our work in connection with this unique home which we now regard as one of our marque projects with an Architectural emphasis.
