Stour Row, Dorset
Designed specifically to be sympathetic and harmonise with its surrounding landscape, this property focuses on the increasingly popular use of oak timber frame, alongside the equally essential emphasis on light and energy efficiency.
The aesthetic of the 19th century cottage that it replaces will be preserved, as we are re-using the stone, maintaining the building's character and charm, whilst improving it with 21st century technologies.
With plenty of free-flowing space, the ground floor will be largely open plan, with oak beams throughout forming the perfect marriage between traditional and more contemporary design.
