Broken Plan Pre-Fab
New-build family house in Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire.
Working within considerable local planning restrictions we designed a house that is both contemporary and at ease in its historic village setting. The exterior marries vernacular materials and proportion with modern detailing while the interior’s fluid arrangement of varied spaces reveals moments of surprise and delight.
Materials are largely left natural and self-finished inside and out, with inspiration coming from the area’s robust and simple farm buildings.
Structurally Insulated Panel (SIP) construction provides excellent environmental performance and allowed the structure to be erected to water-tightness in only one week. The total build cost of less than £1,500 per sqm represents excellent value for a unique family home.
