Impressive new-build home

Take this impressive new-build home in Shropshire by Gregory Phillips Architects. Set within an inspirational 20-acre rural site, the remarkable 1,200sqm property was designed to allow the landscaping to blend and interact with the building, blurring the boundaries between inside and out, and rooting the house into its site.

The internal layout of the house provides four wings of accommodation oriented to provide the best daylight, views, and interaction with the surroundings. Stand-out features include a covered walkway entrance which crosses a reflecting swimming pool, and a striking double-height entrance space.

The luxury home design was inspired by the traditional country house with rear courtyard and stabling. Access is gained via a meandering driveway, which passes the existing restored Victorian central hall, and the property also has a car-port, garage, 5-a-side pitch and a tennis court.

Refurbishment and extension

Gregory Phillips Architects also remodelled this existing property in Holland Park to create a modern, sophisticated and substantial family home with statement entrance. The layout of the house was vastly improved to maximise the drama of the spaces, with the rear of the property entirely rebuilt

The luxury home design team created a lower-ground floor with dramatic 11x11m column-free living, dining and kitchen space with glazed sliding doors opening onto the entertaining terrace and landscaped garden.

In addition to structural changes, interior design was also subject to a total overhaul. The team used texture-rich suede panelling, silk, and marble used to create a calm, contemporary and sophisticated aesthetic.
