Carter-Zub Finalist for LABC Construction excellence awards

Project details

The project consist of an exclusive self-build family home on a previously un-used plot of land located on Little Poulton Lane, Poulton le-Fylde.

The objective of this project was to create a beautifully designed, contemporary, yet functional family home. Thus embracing volume, depth and light. The new build development is constructed with a bespoke trussed roof with a slate roof covering and rafters providing an additional 2 bedrooms within the roof void. In total offering 6 generously sized bedrooms. The elevations have a combination of cedar timber panelling, white K-Redner, grey facing brickwork and large architectural glazing right up to the ridge. The combination of the soft grey walls matched with the white K-rend help to reflect light and create a mesmerising sense of calm and understated elegance.

Internally, the expansive living space offers bespoke, intricate and individual detail with features including plenty of architectural gazing, helping to maximise magnitudes of natural light throughout. This has helped to achieve a seamless quality finish.

Welcoming you into the property is a grand vaulted reception hall instantly giving a sense of open plan living which boasts plenty of natural light and stunning views of the local surrounding countryside. High levels of workmanship and specification can be seen though-out with the hallway offering a large gallery going right up into the eaves finished with a beautifully bespoke chandelier, 5m in size. Again, reiterating this developments magnificence.

The master suite is located at the rear of the house and overlooks the living green flat roof and garden below. It also has the bonus of its own private balcony with tremendous views to the rear of the plot. This project has been attentively designed and highly thought-through. Finished immaculately, being worthy of the Best individual new home award.

Key building elements:

  • Fully insulated bespoke trussed roof with a slate roof covering.

  • Fully insulated cavity walls.

  • Super insulated beam and block ground floors.

  • Engineered timber suspended floors full insulated.

  • Large architectural aluminium windows throughout.

  • Feature cedar cladding and render elevations.

  • Open plan modern day living.

This outstanding project goes above and beyond the level seen on an everyday basis. Continuously boasting high quality finish and detail. The design had an emphasis on client satisfaction, quality of work, utilisation of space as well as individuality. Combined, these factors have enabled us to create a family home that has exceeded expectations with a remarkable end result.
