    Domestic

Right from the outside, the project was challenging, combining cutting edge building methods, with traditional trades and finishes. The building was designed to blend into the hill side, which meant large retaining walls and basements. As the steel frame work went up on site, a feel for the finished product slowly took shape. The steel frame work was clad in timber, producing large vaulted rooms. All manner of materials were used in the finishes, from Moroccan polished plaster, to polished concrete floors. Add to that one of the largest domestic sliding doors ever made, with the front façade clad entirely with flint, it certainly has the wow factor. The main roof was finished by AAC waterproofing using a rubber membrane, whilst the low level roof had a green wild flower finish. The end result was televised on Grand Designs, a true one off.
