Planning permission has been granted for our Chalk House project, located amidst rolling Surrey countryside.
Jonathan Tuckey Design were approached by the client to create an understated, yet contemporary country house that had sustainability and energy efficiency at the forefront of the scheme.
Detail design visualisations illustrate an open plan, three-bedroom family home channelling views towards greenery and sweeping vistas. The building will be composed of a timber frame, infilled with hempcrete, with a 100mm thick cyclopean lime concrete façade. This textural material palette will nestle the building into its sloping topography with delicate poise.
Sustainable technologies are integral to the proposal, with ground source heat pumps, potable water borehole, grey water recycling, solar panelling and a passive ventilation system implemented. The house will rise from the footprint of an existing structurally unsound bungalow, to maintain an equilibrium between landscape and building.
