nj-ARCHITECTS were appointed to design three contemporary houses for the site in this exclusive suburb of Harrogate.
The new designs create site‐specific architecture which is a positive addition to the character of the area. Directly referencing the architecture and urban forms that surround them whilst complimenting the rural aspect.
A flexible and contemporary interior is wrapped in a contextually sensitive stone, glass, render and timber skin. Against the robust solidity of the stonework and render, lightness is introduced through expansive windows which extend down to the floor to bring natural light deep into the rooms. Gritstone has been chosen to harmonise with the bronze window frames, with timber louvers/fins to the bays to add warmth and natural tones and contrast with the dark zinc panelling.
