Private House, Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire, United Kingdom 1993–1994

This small house stands in fenland on the edge of a village near Boston. The site was distinctive for its sheltered position, with a wide northern panorama over flat fields. On the south side, towards the village, the new house makes a group with an old brick barn and mature trees, to enclose a densely planted and sheltered garden. The biggest windows of the house look north to the horizon and over the first field, which has now been cultivated by the clients as a wildflower meadow.
