blog: contemporary new house rapidly taking shape…

Our contemporary new house in East Morton, near Bradford, is rapidly progressing with the building shell works virtually complete. The roof structure has now been finished with the external finishes, which include Western red cedar cladding, gun-metal grey full-height aluminium windows, and a zinc look-alike standing seam roof, due to be installed in the coming weeks.

The side elevation of the new dwelling with the curved bay window at ground floor clearly visible.

This has been a really exciting architectural commission for the company, and due to it’s prominent position on the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool canal, we believe it will attract a good deal of attention once completed. (To be honest, it seems to be doing already!)

The north elevation will consist of a mixture of rendered and timber clad walls, as well as a structurally glazed corner window at ground floor, glazed sliding doors, and a glass balcony, which we believe will be a stunning addition to the canal side.

The front (road-side) elevation has been faced in stone in order to sit comfortably within the street scene, however a darker, more contemporary mortar joint with regular coursing has been opted for, so as not to distract from the contemporary appearance of the other elevations.

We have been appointed to provide a full architectural service for this project, so will be regularly updating our blog with photographs during the coming weeks as the building really starts to take shape…..
