Project Detail

Clipsham House, Gaulby

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Winner

Clipsham House is a new building designed to respect its setting in the rural conservation village of Gaulby.

It uses a vernacular architecture and traditional materials of red brick and dark slate roofing. Placing the house in the centre of the plot allowed the retention of all the well-established ash trees that give this site its character.

The massing is reminiscent of a large rural barn which has been converted, with a double height entrance hall, glazed at high level.

Project Overview

A key focal feature throughout the house is the use of Clipsham stone, a local natural stone quarried near Stamford.

This light buff stone with grey streaks has warmth and character, and is used externally and carried through internally.

Inside, the stone provides a backdrop as the curve of the oak stair handrail draws the eye up to the open roof eaves, with roof glazing providing a sunlight wash across the wall.

This house is based around two large living spaces. The kitchen dining space, at the heart of the house, is an everyday space with an abundance of light and views of the garden.

The lounge is accessed via two sets of double doors, from the hall and directly from the kitchen. This allows the majority of the whole ground floor to be opened up.
