design et al are delighted to announce that David James Architects & Associates Ltd have been shortlisted for Residential £2.5-5Million (Property By Value) Award in The International Design And Architecture Awards 2016
18 Bury Road is a striking, uniquely designed house. The result is a functional, stylish living space that takes full advantage of the light and space provided by the site.
David James Architects were appointed by Husen Developments Ltd to design this unique house. Strong lines, combined with an interesting mix of finishes, allows this striking house to appear as a sculptural form emerging from the landscape. The house works in unity with the site and varying ground levels, and is orientated to take full advantage of the light and views over the garden. Extensive use of glazing enhances the harmony between the natural outside environment and the inside living space.
An impressive double volume entrance space is flooded by natural light. The ground floor accommodation comprises a gym, home cinema/ games room, integral double garage and two double bedrooms. The internal layout is cleverly designed to optimize the site topography, with the living areas located on the upper floor, taking full advantage of views over the garden and beyond. The kitchen/ living area is located on the first floor, accessed from a landing bathed in natural light, forming a bridge over the cavernous double volume entrance hall. The large open plan living/ dining room features a vaulted ceiling and double height glazing. A dividing wall dissects this impressive space, with a feature fireplace offering a focal point for both sides.
The upper floor also houses the master bedroom suite, with a private rear facing terrace, and ensuite. A guest suite and snug are located towards the front of the house with a shared terrace.
