BERKSHIRE HOUSE GREGORY PHILLIPS ARCHITECTS
A shining example of modern architectural style, this building is notable for the meticulous care that has gone into crafting every detail. Located in a commanding position offering views of woods near the River Thames, the home is split into two halves – one area holds the guest accommodation, a playroom and utility spaces, while the other houses family areas. The layout may be classic, but the ingenious mix of shady, enclosed colonnades and double-height spaces edged with vast windows lends it a real sense of drama. A natural palette of pale stained red cedar and polished concrete adds Scandinavian-style calm ( gregoryphillips.com).
