Glade House in Surrey, Southern England


Planning approval has been received for ‘Glade House’, a bespoke contemporary 5-bed family home by award-winning, Winchester based Architects AR Design Studio. Sat within a clearing in a woodland plot, this replacement dwelling seeks to integrate the architecture with the landscape, giving equal consideration to both interior and exterior space.

The layout of the proposal has been conceived to follow the natural axes of the site. The ground floor comprises of four brick walls that align with these axes and reach out into the plot, giving a distinction between the public and private. This establishes individual gardens that are tailored to the interior spaces of the house that spill out onto them. Full height glazing is used throughout the ground floor, allowing a seamless transition between inside and out.

At first floor, four timber clad volumes sit atop the brick walls and accommodate the bedrooms. These nestle amongst the canopies of the mature trees with views to the gardens.

Where these volumes meet at the centre of the house, a double height void is proposed. This is capped with a rooflight that floods the centre of the house and the main entrance hall with natural light, linking each of the main spaces together at the heart of the home.

The result is a one-off contemporary design. It enhances the architectural distinctiveness of the area whilst blending into the verdant context, creating conditions for the building and its site to thrive in the future. AR Design Studio are thrilled to receive the decision and looks forward to starting the build later this year.
