from concept to completion
Linden House is a unique family home designed to fill a tricky infill site in Leicester, which sits in-between a single storey bungalow and a 2.5 storey Victorian house. The design has been largely influenced by the site and surrounding context whilst meeting the clients brief of a modern bespoke family home. The houses uses light and angles to create the illusion of more space. High ceilings on the ground floor with slot windows running horizontally in line with the ceiling helps flood the lower rooms with natural light.
The open plan living overlooking the south facing garden, the feature hallway with vaulted ceiling and skylight creates a dynamic entrance and a large master bedroom with balcony creates a stunning space.
Although compact the house is designed to be space saving with an abundance of clever solutions and using volume, light and materials to enhance the experience. Throughout the house is a simple palette of hard and soft materials working with natural timber and white walls to make the spaces feel open and airy. This is reflected on the external materials alongside the striking feature zinc roof
