Bespoke Home

South Downs National Park

The design of a unique home set into the Hampshire countryside on an existing farm. Adopting the latest technologies, the building will be specified to achieve negative carbon standards including generation of all energy on site.


The Project

ep projects are working with several private clients to design bespoke homes and regenerate / update existing dwellings. Always with a clear environmental focus, our work often includes sensitive and rural locations, requiring thoroughness of process and close liaison with authorities and statutory consultees.


Desired Outcomes

The design of a location specific home, responding and harmonising with the countryside setting. Working closely with the local authority, our team are preparing detailed site assessment and integration of landscape and rewilding proposals.


The Challenge?

Developing a design solution which achieves support and sensitively responds to “the place” delivering the home our clients design brief demands.


How did we Help?

ep projects are coordinating the design and planning team and acting as lead consultants, whilst carefully considering the requirements of the local authority and stakeholders / consultees.


What are the Benefits?

An architectural solution which is subservient to the setting, is imbedded in the landscape and which delivers our clients forever home.
