Scheme designed to blend with its rural surrounds

Knox Bhavan Architects has secured planning consent for a 350sq m five-bedroom house in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Chilterns.

The existing single-storey dwelling, in the village of Ibstone, will be demolished to make way for the new family home which has been designed to integrate with the surrounding landscape.

The lower ground floor has been partially cut into a steep section of the sloping site, minimising the impact and perceived bulk of the property.
