Woodcote House
Woodcote House
Paul Cashin Architects
Situated just north of the village of Upham, near Winchester, is Woodcote House. Nestled amongst the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs National Park, this contemporary house replaces a series of brick buildings that had fallen into disrepair. After achieving permission at appeal, work started on the house in 2017 and took two years to build. The property includes four large bedrooms, each with ensuite, and countryside views from spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas which feature wide expanses of glazing. Carefully considered details have been incorporated into the design, such as bespoke joinery for the fireplace and bathrooms, specially fabricated slimline copings and cladding sections, and brick cantilevers that complement the modern proposals. The rural facing brick was chosen to reference the memory of the buildings that this home replaces, whilst the landscape (design by Andy McIndoe) has been shaped and planted to help the house settle into the landscape. Internally the house has a simple layout, with single level large open plan living and kitchen spaces, and further accommodation areas split amongst two levels. A central spine links these spaces via a minimal timber staircase. Outside spaces are linked to the ground floor rooms with terraces and views to the South Downs, particularly to the north across the large gardens. The house meets Code 4 of the Sustainable Homes criteria with it's natural ventilation strategy and high level of insulation. This project is a collaboration between Paul Cashin Architects and Design Engine.

Despite popular belief, true modern homes do not follow popular trends. In fact, the modern style that we know today is from a 20th century design movement which focusses on structural simplicity, order and functionality.

Modern spaces incorporate neutral colours, basic natural materials and clean architectural lines, with an emphasis on strong lines, a lack of ornamentation and minimal texture; it uses straightforward furniture and dramatic modern art to complement the stark architecture. Lighting is also a key structural element that accentuates planes and highlights focal points.

Modern design is often a love-it or hate-it style — many appreciate its minimalist, uncluttered feel, while others miss the warmth and variety found in other styles. Modern design is often confused with contemporary design, which is constantly changing and evolving with the times and trends.
