Guilford Backland Development
Rees Architects are currently in the process of developing a small backland area on the outskirts of Guilford. The site, currently occupied by three timber storage sheds, will be redeveloped into a private residential area with two semi-detached houses and associated landscaping & amenities.
The houses have be cleverly designed to minimise impact on the surrounding buildings, keeping height to a minimum and directing views away from any existing properties and into open land. Local and traditional materials have been used to clad the buildings, which have a solid ground floor that is topped with a light frame timber structure.
