Taking an existing planning consent for this new build property in Harpenden dnkdesign enhanced the external architectural style and rationalised the internal layouts creating a contemporary styled interior.
The main lateral living area to the rear of the ground floor with a large open plan kitchen, dining and living room overlook raised and landscaped terraces and are separated by sliding screens opening to make a large informal space or sub-divided to create more intimate rooms. A palatte of soft natural colours and materials creates a warm and relaxing environment punctuated with bespoke display solutions.
A central atrium with a glazed skylight to the main roof draws light through the property with an open void to the main entrance further enhanced by fully glazed balustrades to the staircase. A large contemporary lighting feature spirals through the floors linking the spaces together.
The central core of the ground floor incorporates a large utility, pantry and boot-room maximising the storage capabilities while a small passenger lift runs through the building linking all the floors for elderly relatives.
The basement with an open light-well and a ‘walk-on’ roof-light to maximise the natural light has a large gym with steam room, family room, bar and home cinema with state of the art AV equipment.
