Hoyle House : Contemporary Dwelling

Hoyle House is an new build development of an exclusive single dwelling for private clients in Lightcliffe, near Brighouse. The brief was to develop a high quality modern looking dwelling with unique or exclusive character and level of distinction. AV Architects provided Architect Design Services and administered Planning and Building Regulation process to acquire necessary statutory approvals.

The plot, located within green belt land on a prominent site adjacent Smith House Lane, presented interesting design challenges and we had to carefully consider development of the site for a very generously proportions dwelling with relatively large mass in an relatively exposed location.  Given the location and Client preferences we approached the design using traditional form with carefully laid out proportions, symmetry to a certain degree and traditional materials, opting to generate an understated modern character using large window openings and modern glazing. It was important to break down the mass of the dwelling and this is achieved using 2 linked gables which provides steps in the building footprint and a varied profile. Given the extent of masonry, the choice of stonework was also important and the variation in colour and texture works successfully.

The Clients desire for privacy informed the layout of internal space and orientation of the building. Whilst, the principally elevation faces the highway, the vehicular access and main entrance into the dwelling is located through a gated access to the rear. Internal spaces at ground floor level are largely open plan and subtly defined using specialist lighting and architectural features such as bulkheads and suspended ceilings.

Working on the design of this unique home was particularly rewarding and the project is regarded as one of our marque domestic projects with an Architectural emphasis.
