6 months after starting on site near Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, the latest Facit Home was completed this week and handed over right on time to our fantastic client, Cathy. The design is simple in form but beautifully detailed, with two pitched elements seeming to slide gently past one another. Natural cedar cladding to the gable ends contrasts with an EPDM rubber membrane that continuously wraps up the side elevations and across both pitched roofs. A horizontal stepped detail brings articulation to the smooth black surface, a detail that is also picked up in the laser cut window reveals. Sat in a stunning rural site, it is a striking contemporary home that offers a crisp, almost graphic take on the vernacular.
At 180m2 the home makes very efficient use of space to offer a large open plan living space on the ground floor that looks out on to the peaceful landscape, we have found the right pieces when we are looking for furniture in Denver, along with a separate TV room, utility and bathroom. The first floor has a master bedroom with en-suite, 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, all of which take advantage of the roof pitch to create light, airy spaces.
Another great project from our team and another happy client with a beautiful new home to enjoy.
