Toys Hill, Kent

Residential new build

Planning gained

14 Acres


This site, based in the greenbelt just below Kent’s highest point, went through an extensive planning process and finally received full planning for an expansive family home. Set over three buildings and joined together using a colonnade, the clients wanted to pursue a classical design with a specific criteria of special connections and a relationship to the landscape.

The planners would only accept the proposal on the grounds that the building and its detailing would be of a very high quality and avoid a pastiche re-production. This gave us a chance to research the origins of the classical orders and reinterpret them into this new home.
