Stunning Residence nears completion 

Holmewood nestles into the gently undulating Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty at the head of a south facing valley. An energy efficient home that enjoys natural ventilation for most of the year, with flexibility to entertain, a neutral foil flooded with natural light, integrated into its setting. Centred on a covered court with rising pool floor, linking the entrance hall to the principal reception rooms along the glazed south facing elevation. Retracting walls provide additional flexibility to accommodate a variety of functions. Generous ceiling heights and the graceful curve of the thermally efficient concrete roof unify the spaces below, providing a strong sense of orientation that makes the most of the stunning views.
