Scope of Build: A ground-up new-build house for a couple with contemporary tastes, who like to host parties inside and out.
Outcome: A home reminiscent of - and as spacious as - a converted barn, aiming windows at key views of a protected wetland to the south of the site. When the living and dining room windows are open, the spaces become one with the external courtyard and swimming pool - the result is a sunny, private entertainment space.
