Lower Mill Estate
Lower Mill Estate is an existing nature reserve in Cotswolds; one of the most attractive locations in Great Britain. Our task was to design a ‘landmark’ house, for an unknown client. In the absence of a real client and based on our own experience we felt that a location close to the water would be seemly. Due to the close vicinity to the water we positioned our building on piles and consequently extended above the level of the terrain with stepped terraces and a roof garden to improve the views. In architectural terms, a big window would offer vistas to the water, the countryside and the open sky above. The internal configuration is fully flexible aiming to satisfy the individual taste of the potential client. This conceptual proposal for a leisure house could also be stretched and contracted to meet different financial limits; from top of the range luxury to economically sustained dwelling.
