Private House, Sonning

Scheme name: Private House, Sonning
Practice: Gregory Phillips Architects
Client: Private
Photographer: Darren Chung

The modernist country house has become a significant building type of the early 21st century: concrete framed, using white render and stainless steel and highly glazed (but efficiently so), this project ticks all these boxes and gives the clients all they asked for and more. The impressive glazed elevations overlooking the rolling Berkshire hills contrast with a very special flint-walled inner courtyard overlooked by galleried corridors lined with timber and floored with stone. It admires itself in the reflecting pool across which you enter, rightly so.
