Building anything new in Bath can be a great challenge, particularly in a contemporary style. On a little backland site in a Victorian area to the east of the city, this project’s architects succeeded in securing planning permission for a new house where others had been unsuccessful with more traditional designs. This of itself is testament to their proposal’s architectural integrity and vision. The house is not self-indulgent, though, and the way effort has been directed is intelligent and effective. The low-lying, single-storey building is partly sunken into the sloping site. Behind a modest exterior, it has a strong, uniting spatial quality but remains intimate and homely.
