Treetops
Farnham, Surrey
Contemporary hillside home, designed for entertaining

Set within a steeply sloping site, surrounded by pine trees, this is a modern home with traditional elements, designed to encompass impressive and grand entertaining spaces whilst also creating a homely, inviting retreat for its owners.

 

The design responds to the extraordinary topography of the site, with the rear forming a series of tiered terraces, louvers and balconies that project into the treetops. The layering of elevations adds depth and animation, whilst the warm textures of buff brick and rich iroko timber adorning the fa├žade allow the building to blend into its wild backdrop.

Inside, spaces range from the expansive kitchen, dining and entertaining area, with double height glazing drawing the eye out to the panoramic woodland views, to cosy sunken lounges and a timber clad meditation room and study. Maintaining a connection with the outside was another key element of the brief.

 

Top floor bedrooms nestled under the floating roof canopy provide beautiful outlooks and the spa leads directly onto a rear terrace, with the swimming pool and tennis court beyond.
