New British Homes

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of British Properties. Residences are mostly located in the south east of the country. e-architect aim to include the best quality British Property / projects. We cover completed houses in Britain and new property designs. We also post residential architecture competitions across the British Isles.

Orchard House – 28 Nov 2012
Orchard House was commissioned as a place in which to live, work and pursue various hobbies. The Client specifically wanted to create a lasting piece of responsive architecture that was not defined by her use of a wheelchair and where the building interacted effortlessly with the landscape.

Residence near Aldeburgh, Suffolk, south east England
Design: Strom Architects
Suffolk House

House in Suffolk – 13 Dec 2011
The clients’ brief is for a country house – ‘a dream in a wood’, a peaceful place to relax, regenerate, and think of new ideas. The existing site with the pool, its ruins and low walls has a very strong presence, and we wanted to keep this as an important part of the site.

Hampshire House – 19 May 2011
The architects have overcome the reticence of planners, who insisted on this New Forest house being invisible from the public realm, in a thoroughly elegant way. Its concept is beautifully simple: a single long, linear shape with a central living space which is open to both ends. While it pays homage to mid-century Danish examples, the architecture has been enriched with the playful humour of the quirkily placed windows. Locally grown sweet chestnut structural panels minimise the carbon footprint and allowed for a quick build.
