Project: New 2-bed House
Location: Cambridge, Conservation Area
Contractor: A&S Builders
Completion: December 2014
This new 2-bedroom dwelling has been carefully and sensitively designed to respond to the back lane character of this city centre location. Traditional materials have been selected but have been used in a contemporary way lending a contemporary look to the dwelling. A cedar shingle roof provides a rich, warm colour and texture which blends the house into the surroundings. The natural effects of aging and weathering will give an attractive silvery grey colour in time and will lend a distinctive look to the property. The single storey flat roof is covered in sedum grass providing a softer and more attractive appearance.
