The team at AR Design Studio are honoured to be awarded with the Sunday Times British Homes Award 2014…
On Friday 19th September the Sunday Times British Homes Awards ceremony was held at Grosvenor Square, London. Having been shortlisted in the best one-off-house category, AR Design Studio sent a very hopeful Sam and Laura from the studio. It was with great surprise and pleasure that AR Design Studio was announced as the winners of the category with its latest house, 4 Views, situated in Winchester, Hampshire.
This striking upside-down build contrasts with its conventional neighbours, displaying a flat overhanging roof, dark grey brick, cedar cladding and grey aluminium framed windows.
The house connects with nature through three stunning, far reaching views of the South Downs. The long views inspiring the clients to look forward to the future, the courtyard giving space for inward private and reflective times. Subsequently, this is how the house has become known as 4 Views. It was commissioned by Rob and Suzie Eatwell who are wonderful and trusting clients that gave the team at AR Design Studio a virtually free rein over the design. They wanted a life experience to immerse themselves in, having recently lost a daughter; a project that would give them a positive focus and a fresh start for them and their family. This working relationship consequently resulted in the Eatwell’s becoming not only personal friends of AR’s director Andy Ramus but of the entire studio.
Recently the clients have decided they enjoyed the process so much that they have commissioned AR Design Studio to undertake another house for them in the local area.
4 Views has also been shortlisted for the Brick Awards 2014 and Build It Awards, with ceremonies later in the year.
