Work has recently started on site developing the Moat House, a bespoke dwelling for the MD of Ivy Homes, in Mottram Cheshire.
The house, sited in the green belt, is a blend of contemporary styling with vernacular materials and offers an innovative approach to designing in this sensitive area.
The two-storey house with single storey garage and swimming pool buildings shall be constructed of dressed stone and white render walls and topped with a slate roof. Large picture windows are recessed to create depth to the facades and offer framed views of the countryside beyond.
This is the latest project for Ivy Homes, an important repeat client of the practice for whom we have designed a number of residential developments including The Vineyard and The Residences in North Manchester. A number of other projects are currently in design stages.
