North Yorkshire  Para 55

Design work is underway on a 10,000²ft para 55 house with equestrian facilities, set in a 250 acre site with stunning views of the North Yorkshire Moors.

The architectural concept is exploring the texture of local stone carving techniques with water harvesting and optimised solar orientation.
