Quarry House, Barham

We have recently been appointed to design and build a detached contemporary and very generous two-to-three-bedroom family dwelling of around 450m2 situated at the southern end of a sloping 4 ha site. The lower part of the site had been used as a chalk quarry around the 1870’s and seems ideal for the construction of a new two storey single aspect family home with intensive green roof cover so invisible from the top of the site. A further smaller plot at the bottom of the site is forming part of the dense forest with the idea that  another single storey barn-like small family home can be constructed at a later stage where workers originally had sheltered structures.
