Nestled in the heart of the bucolic landscape, Little Shelford stands as a testament to its rural roots, where agriculture weaves an enduring narrative through the fabric of the community. The historical backdrop reveals a once derelict house, devoid of architectural significance, offering a blank canvas for transformation. In our endeavor to honor tradition and seamlessly integrate with the village's character, we drew inspiration from timeless designs reflective of the area's rich heritage.

Our proposal envisioned the creation of three new dwellings, meticulously crafted to not only harmonize with the surroundings but elevate the immediate environment. The expansive drive, serving as the portal to these abodes, not only facilitates access but also forges a visual and physical relationship between the structures. This deliberate choice reinforces a sense of interconnectedness, fostering a symbiotic relationship with the landscape.

Each dwelling is an architectural ode to the village and its neighboring structures, capturing the essence of the local aesthetic. Borrowing design cues from the traditional charm of the area, the buildings seamlessly blend into the tapestry of the countryside while embracing contemporary living standards. This thoughtful amalgamation results in a collection of structures that pay homage to the rural context, offering a bridge between the past and present—a harmonious coexistence of tradition and modernity for the fortunate occupants.
