House at Piper's End, Hertfordshire | Niall McLaughlin Architects

The design of the new house is sensitive to its setting within an existing, mature landscape, including an orchard belonging to the original house. 
The house and the new landscaping surrounding it are conceived in plan as five strips, characterised by different materials: a thicket of silver birch; a timber cabinet; a vitrine of timber framed glass; a loggia of steel columns supporting a perforate metal canopy and a concrete reflecting pool.
