Temple Bar Design was contacted by the owner of a large Development Company to design his new family home in Harrow.
The Client brief was to design a new, large family home with lots of open spaces for entertaining, meetings, and general comfortability for himself and his family.
The design work was complicated in that we wanted to create a unique family home, but needed it to sync into its surroundings at the same time. The general area is well developed with other large family homes, and due to rather stringent local Bye – Laws we were to maintain the general external finishes of the area.
We ended on a facebrick home, with sandstone cills and portico, emphasizing the entrance area and making the front elevation grand. The design is symmetrical with a central spine that is also emphasised by the front portico as well as the dormer extension which serves the bedroom in the loft.
The site will be completely overhauled, with new boundary walls, driveway, and all new landscaping, while at the same time keeping the site’s existing trees.
This project is currently undergoing planning scrutiny and we are looking forward to a successful approval once again.
