Grand Designs Traditional Stone meets Contemporary Design

One international project that recently caught the eye of the Outdoor Establishments Design Team was a house and garden documented on Grand Designs. An ambitious couple had their heart set on building a glass-fronted, modern home on top of a storm-prone Welsh cliff that was crumbling away beneath their feet. The project itself presented its fair share of difficulties, including the harsh Welsh climate and the awkwardness of construction on top of an unstable cliff.

What appealed so much to us about this project apart from the incredible stone work, is the way the design blends the old, traditional stone walling with the minimalist, contemporary design of the new home. The designers were able to create a stunning, liveable home that proves that the quirky combination of modern design and traditional building techniques does work.
