Housing: Calleywell Lane 33 homes distinguished by three distinct character areas that collectively form a unique development on the fringes of the Kent Downs AONB. A new development of individual homes, derived out of a thorough understanding of its place, one where buildings carefully knit themselves into their surroundings with the feeling of having been there for some time. . Our proposals for a series of new dwellings appropriate themselves to the scale and context of the village in which they sit and build on the principles and language of a cluster of housing typologies, each with its own identity, each focused on creating a distinct connection to the surrounding landscape via a diverse collection of outside spaces. . Each cluster aims to provide carefully considered, well designed and adaptable homes, all constructed from long lasting, quality materials. . The site conditions have heavily informed each building type, from a cluster of steeply pitched brick terraced houses to low lying courtyard dwellings, part enclosed by walled gardens. . The layout is driven by an attitude towards allowing the landscape to inform each building footprint (rather than the architecture dictating the landscape), and how these then define the moments between buildings. . . . 10_CLTG Housing_2019 - 2021 . .

Concept: House in a Clearing Early development maquette models for a new build family home on a partially elevated site in the rural Kent countryside. . Conceived as a collection of rooms formed around an existing group of trees that in their arrangement create a series of informal courtyards. . Communal and private spaces meander around these intimate landscape spaces, whilst allowing for connections through and beyond to a woodland, wildflower meadows and the buildings wider landscape setting. . . . 21_BLZC Residential_2019 - 2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #model #cardmodel #form #development #workinprogress #architecture #composition #yard #courtyard #courtyardgarden #design #concept #massing #maquette #newbuildhome #house #dwellinghouse #landscape #landscapedesign #woodland #wildflowermeadow #garden #kent

Planning: Three Tiered House We are delighted to receive planning consent for a new build house for a couple looking to downsize in scale but upgrade in quality of life. Designed as a series of connecting volumes, three tiered house’s arrangement of spaces, both internally and externally, encourages interaction to take place within and between its built form. The principle house consists of two wings, one for living, the other for sleeping, each one connected by a space for siting or moving through. In its materiality, gestures are modest and reference the buildings that previously occupied this site, albeit with a renewed sense of articulation in their use of brick and corrugated metal. Rugged textures and dulcet tones have been chosen to compliment their landscape setting, allowing the building to sit in harmony with its landscape. Externally a series of courtyards, one large (and on show), the other small (and more intimate), create spaces to gather or pause, which when combined with more wild gardens on the outer periphery, allow for a rich variant of scale and type of landscape space. The project builds on the remnants of the buildings that say here before it, a pair of existing agricultural buildings, and in its redevelopment seeks to re-build and re-purpose the site to create a home that is grounded in its locale and of its time. . . . 37_PFCP Residential_2018 - 2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #visualization #cgi #imagery #architecture #archdaily #designboom #design #planning #massing #courtyard #redevelopment #newbuild #repurpose #brick #corrugatedmetal #dwellinghouse #agricultural #landscape #garden #kent
