About This Project

Derry House

Derry House was located on Ridgemount Road in Sunningdale, Berkshire. The surrounding properties were large detached houses, but there was no predominant style in the area. Instead of designing a pastiche executive house with faux stone detailing, we allowed the traditional English Queen Anne-style architecture to develop the design of the property. The new building was brick, with a focus on traditional brick detailing to break up the façade while the rear design of the property was a contrasting modern take on family life.

Internally the modern twist continued. An open-plan kitchen area incorporated large sliding windows to maximize views and enhance connections to the landscaped rear garden. The staircase was situated under a canopied roof light and adorned with stylised pendant lighting. It formed a beautiful Art Deco core to the house that drew you up to explore the rooms it served above.
