Sanctuary is a large family home in Berkshire for a couple who required large areas of internal space with a playful take on the interiors. Secret passageways, hidden rooms and slides are all incorporated into the design.

 

Key to this scheme was the environmental strategy and Project Entity worked closely with the client’s project team in designing a building that would have a very light environmental footprint. Proposed materials would be as local as practically feasible, heat recovery and energy generation would be built into the project from the start.

The project is designed as an extension of the landscape, its form is fragmented to sit lightly within and become part of its environment and not impose itself on it.
