When building your own home in a suburban setting, it can be challenging to balance the need for privacy with a desire for an open, spacious design. But this challenge has been met at Farm View, a family dwelling in Stoke-on-Trent. Farm View is one of six building plots formed as part of a pioneering residential development and designed to reflect the owner's individual needs and lifestyles.
The owners wanted a balance between privacy from neighbouring houses and an open connection to the outside world. To achieve this, architects Design21 opted for a simple, ordered form made from a mix of variable-sized glazing, timber feature panels, and brickwork.
