Contemporary Residential Architecture in Britain

New British Houses

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of British Properties. Residences are mostly located in the south east of the country.

We aim to include British Property / projects that are either of excellent quality.

We cover completed houses in Britain and new property designs. We also post residential architecture competitions across the British Isles.

We have 3 pages of British House selections.

Thompson House – 20 Jan 2013

The Hurst House is a new build one-off contemporary house located on the edge of the village of Bourne End. The clients’ brief was to build a very sustainable and contemporary family home that would have the flexibility to successfully cope with changing family conditions as their children grow up and leave the nest. This lead to a house where they can live in one extended space while family bedrooms can be shut down and left on tick-over.

Country House in Suffolk – 19 Jul 2012
Jerry Tate Architects has received planning [1] for a 500m2 country house on a greenfield site in Easton, Suffolk. The contemporary design integrates the building and landscape in both form and function. The form of the house is inspired by the shape and structure of a sycamore seed, and the building links physically with the proposed parkland to achieve a co-dependent self-sufficiency in terms of energy, water and food. This functionality is a traditional part of county house design, reinterpreted for 21st Century requirements.

This cantilevered holiday home near the village of Thorington in Suffolk, England, is 30 meters long, with a 15 meters cantilever over a slope, plunging the house headlong into nature.

Mole Architects from Cambridge were executive architects and Studio Makkink & Bey from Amsterdam collaborated on the interior. The Barn is available for holiday rentals.
