New Contemporary Country House

We have been working up the design and detail for our “Contemporary Country House” and met with our clients this morning to discuss the developed design. They loved it and the feedback was extremely positive. We have created a 3d rendered model of the house and we were able to “walk-through” the entire house visiting each space and each room in turn. This allowed our client to experience the joy long before the house is complete. The site is located [...]
