More Details about Devisdale House
Careful consideration of the design was needed to ensure that it fitted in with the conservation area to which it was located and a traditional, but unique, late Arts and Crafts style house was designed. The house was built on a sloping site and designed over with four floors of accommodation to provide a property in excess of 10,000 sq ft.
The main design features of the house are the use of many traditional quality materials including brickwork, natural stone, timber, lead and clay. The focus on the exterior was to provide a house with many design features with the use of brick and traditional stone to provide a stunning glazed entrance feature and destination entrance for the property. The features on the exterior provide varying forms of style picked out from the late Arts and Crafts using traditional timber sash windows with casement windows, box bays, with a mixture of materials used in the elevational treatment using brickwork, clay vertical tiling, wanelap timber and natural stone.
The fabric of the house was built using a more unusual method of construction. The walls, built from ICF (insulated Concrete Formwork), not only provided a quick and cost effective method of construction, but also provided double the amount of insulation needed to comply with current building regulations. The exterior of this structure was then meticulously clad using brickwork, stone, timber and clay tiles to provide the design features shown on the original concept for the house.
