This new-build home office in the Green Belt was constructed under the rules of permitted development. The roof height was restricted to 3 metres so the building is partially sunk into the ground. This creates additional head height and gives the feeling of being 'embedded'.
A battered Portland stone wall guides visitors towards the front door of the main house and defines the car parking forecourt. Inside the building, a concrete desk runs into the cill of the window which follows the sweep of the park outside.
