A large new build contemporary home is proposed within a beautiful landscape of manmade and natural waterways. Its sculptural form aligns key spaces of the house - including a large central hall suitable for music recitals with up to 100 guests - with windows to regard the site's idyllic views.
Handmade brick from nearby kilns are used for construction inside and outside the house - forming the structure, its interior finishes and external terraces which cascade into the adjacent river.
