Water's Edge, Berkshire
A riverside contemporary new home built on sustainable design.
A Thames-side replacement house that pairs a restrained, elegant aesthetic with a resilient structural design and many sustainable technologies. Together these will result in a home that far surpasses the energy saving capabilities of most houses being built today.
Among the many planning and environmental constraints connected with developing a contemporary new build in an established residential setting were those relating to its situation within a high flood risk zone. The resulting design saw the structure elevated over hidden piled foundations to provide protection against any possible future flooding, whilst not compromising the clean lines, fresh timber cladding and modern aesthetic.
