house 1061

The proposed dwelling is located within the conservation area of Alderley Edge, South Manchester, and its design has been influenced by both the constraints of the sites topography and mature landscaping on and around the sensitive site. A proportion of the building has been concealed below ground within roughcast sandstone walls and acts as a solid plinth to the render and glass element above.

The main accommodation above the plinth has been positioned adjacent to a site boundary in a rational linear plan form, with the main south facing living accommodation both overlooking and opening out onto the sloping garden and flat grassed roof (located above the plinth building below).
