Over the years, shedkm has designed a number of bespoke homes, often for existing developer clients, where we have gone on to collaborate more personally, and support them in the various evolving circumstances of their lives. These projects will often address themes in our wider work – the relationships between old and new, sensitive landscape settings and historic constraints – but allow us to test and refine our ideas at a scale that throws details, geometry, materials, light and landscape into sharp focus. Take a look at Churchside, Corbin House, Cottage on a Lake, House for an Art Lover, House North West, Oak Farm and Rockmount.
Single houses can present as many design challenges as larger schemes. The conundrum of how to merge modernism with a sense of home, is something we have been exploring since our award-winning House for an Art Lover in 2015. Each of the individual examples below demonstrates an honesty towards both materials and context, with large expanses of glass which invite nature into the home and provide views out. Mindful of the importance of well-being, we have always ensured that daylight and nature are maximised within our projects and, post-pandemic, we continue to focus on this aspect, designing homes and gardens holistically from the outset.
