New Build Contemporary Home – Yorkshire
Bowman Riley was approached to design a new contemporary detached home within the grounds of an existing plot in Yorkshire. The clients brief was very specific in their requirement for a contemporary design that reflected their modern lifestyle.
Following careful analysis of the existing site, Bowman Riley designed a unique contemporary dwelling that both respected the historical features of the existing site while providing modern, open plan living that reflected the client’s aspirations. The accommodation was provided over two storeys with a low profile, overhanging roof that allowed the new house to fit sensitively within its open countryside setting.
A feature cylindrical tower, containing the main circular stair, marked the entrance to the house and represented a modern reinterpretation of the traditional turret found in many of the historic buildings within the surrounding context. To the ground floor, a large double height living area provided views over the open countryside beyond, with a feature double-sided fireplace connecting to the open plan kitchen dinner opposite.
On the first floor, views were again provided from an internal balcony over the main living space and out to the dramatic external landscape. Private masters quarters were provided off to one half of the upper floor with ensuite bathroom, dressing room, and access to an external terrace. A further two double bedrooms and house bathroom completed the first-floor accommodation.
