Windy Nook

2,254m² Contemporary 6 Bedroom New Build House



Spatial Design Architects were contacted to undertake the design and gain planning permission for a contemporary replacement home inclusive of a detached garage. The site is located within the metropolitan greenbelt and with our greenbelt development strategy, we are aiming to increase the total size of the dwelling by 38%.

The main architectural features at Windy Nook incorporate a dual gable frontage with a setback main entrance doorway with a full height glazed hallway window, a protruding landing window and roof lights above that will flood natural light into the main entrance.

The design of the rear displays a stunning series of glazed apertures and sliding doors offering expansive views of the rear garden and agricultural land beyond. The ground floor façade hosts a series of sliding doors and a frameless glass structure to provide easy access out onto the beautiful al-fresco dining courtyard. All these glazed features blur the boundaries between internal and external spaces with key areas being bathed in natural light.

Windy Nook was designed to create a main two storey form with a single-storey open plan kitchen and dining room with a vaulted ceiling, to allow maximum sunlight into the space via roof windows strategically placed via our sun path analysis.

The new cream/buff brickwork, large format triple glazed windows, off white render bands and stone cladding used in conjunction with the slate roof tiles creates a striking external finish providing our clients what they desired from the outset, a house designed with a traditional form with contemporary detailing.

The house has been designed with renewable energy solutions of solar panels and air source pump heating solution and rainwater harvesting to provide a future proof and sustainable family home.

The design incorporates:

  • Open plan Living, Dining and Kitchen.
  • Utility Room, plant room, W.C. and cloak room.
  • Separate main living room
  • 1 No. Master Bedroom suite with en-suite and dressing room.
  • 4 No. Bedrooms to the First Floor.
  • 1 No. Bedroom to the Second Floor.
  • Detached Double Garage.


The project has been submitted to the local authority planning department for determination and more information to follow on this exciting project.
