A new three-bedroom family house to include a south facing courtyard garden and rear landscaped garden

PMA-Studio completed this house for a private client in an area known as Churchgate in Cheshunt Hertfordshire. Churchgate is on a heritage walk that includes existing 16th or 17th century buildings. The new single-storey
uilding is set back from the road and will be screened by the listed wall and the existing mature trees.

The form and scale of the new dwelling has been carefully considered in consultation with the Conservation Officer in relation to the existing buildings in Churchgate and in particular to the existing building known as ‘The Cottage’. The new building is formed of a series of three equal width pitched roofs orientated parallel to The Cottage. The open gables form windows to the main rooms that look over the garden to the rear and create a semi-enclosed courtyard to the south. The intention is to take aspects of the local forms and present them within a modern sensibility, producing elevations that look new but are also recognisable within the context.

The external roofs and walls of the building are clad in pre-oxidised copper. External doors and windows are to be double glazed in self finished oak frames. The roof light is to be double glazed to match the roof. Rainwater goods are concealed with the walls.
