Country House | Architects for Cambridge | Great Shelford, Cambridgeshire
For a project in Great Shelford, Cambridge, forresterarchitects are collaborating with Callender Howorth. The aim is to provide a contemporary refurbishment that revitalises the interconnected buildings while respecting their traditional materials. The plan is to enhance the original features with modern accents to create a refreshed environment. To provide additional space, a new roof conversion is being added to the main house, creating a sizable extra floor that will be dedicated to accommodating an au pair.
The project aims to create a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, reflecting the needs and desires of the occupants. The design proposal involves an innovative approach that draws on the traditional elements of the buildings, while incorporating modern design principles. The result is a space that is both classic and contemporary, with a sense of warmth and comfort. The main house and outbuildings will be interconnected in a way that allows the space to flow seamlessly, with each area having its own distinct character. The design will make use of natural light, with large windows and skylights to create bright, airy spaces that feel welcoming and comfortable. In addition to the refurbishment of the main house and outbuildings, the project will also involve landscaping and the creation of outdoor spaces that are in harmony with the surrounding countryside. The gardens and outdoor areas will be designed to create a sense of tranquility and relaxation, while also being functional and practical.
The collaboration between forresterarchitects and Callender Howorth brings together a wealth of expertise and experience, ensuring that the project will be executed to the highest standards of design and construction. The goal is to create a space that is both functional and beautiful, reflecting the unique needs and desires of the occupants, while also respecting the traditional character of the buildings and their surroundings.
