A new crisp, contemporary oak framed house in Cambridgeshire. This newly built country home is the ideal mix of traditional construction techniques (green oak frame) and modern-day comfort (heat pump with underfloor heating).

Large panels of glass face the garden and fill the interior spaces with natural daylight.


The twin-gabled house features vaulted oak framed barn spaces to the main living rooms.

Both of these spaces have contemporary freestanding woodburning stoves as focal points in front of full-height glazed gables.

The kitchen features an island unit separating the cooking area from an informal seating area.

A central single story link acts as the main dining space with glazed sliding doors to the garden and a curved zinc roof over.

The contrast of the sand-blasted exposed oak frame and the cool white plastered walls creates a modern sculptural effect.

A polished concrete floor completes the interior design.
