GREAT SHELFORD, CAMBRIDGE
Initially Snell David were asked to consider ways of remodelling and extending the existing house. However after the clients visited a newbuild Arts and Crafts house, completed by Snell David and featured in a magazine, it was decided to demolish and rebuild using a large proportion of the existing foundations.
The clients favoured the less formal, unostentatious image of Arts and Crafts houses and particularly enjoyed ways in which the ‘craftsmanship’ features detailed internally as well as externally.
The result is a large, handsome house that has a relatively strong, simple frontage, which relaxes to the side and rear as the large roof stretches down to a low level with buttresses connecting it to its garden.
