Kent | Base Architecture

In New Farm, this small plot posed a challenge for transforming a well-loved timber cottage into a modern haven. All available space has been meticulously utilised, with a plunge pool at the entrance and rooms opening to private courtyards for a spacious feel. Sustainability was key, utilising underground cool air, solar panels, and concrete for thermal mass. Mixing classic white timber with bold concrete and steel accents has contributed modern flair while maintaining warmth. In spite of the surrounding neighboring homes and proximity to the street, the secluded courtyard at the rear offers privacy and seclusion. The owners’ desire for an urban oasis has been realised through abundant greenery, from rooftop gardens to green walls, seamlessly blending the house with nature’s embrace.
