- The HASSELL vision for the site is for a world class, sustainable park. At its heart is a new community and new connections to the surrounding countryside and its communities. The park would be a vibrant place for current and future generations to enjoy - engaging the community and visitors in activities that reinforce the significance of the place while showing how natural and urban areas can co-exist in a positive and sustainable way.

- The proposal searches the balance between placing the maximum number of rooms on the ground floor yet keeping the garden free from masonry work volumes. This idea is developed through a volumetric composition shaped in three boxes spread throughout the garden, almost aligned and located in the plot northern side creating a wide outer zone facing south. The first box, to the east, houses the children’s area with three single bedrooms upstairs and a playroom on the ground floor. The second one, in the centre, accommodates the main room: the kitchen, a nearly 30square metre and 4metre high room dominated by a large fireplace. The third box, to the west, contains the parents’ zone, with the bedroom at the garden level and a high ceiling studio on the first floor.
