Red House

A new build house in rural Dorset for a London gallerist and family

A new build house in rural Dorset for a London gallerist and family. The house sits on the crest of a hill, overlooking the Cranborne Chase, and takes advantage of spectacular views. Inspired by English houses from the arts and crafts to the Smithsons, each room has a tailored relationship to both its landscape setting and the particular way the owners wish to live.
