2019 Architecture Awards

BUILD 2019 Architecture Awards 40 May19222 ince its establishment in 2009, HollandGreen has made it its mission to deliver inspirational and insightful design and an exceptional client experience. Stephen explores how this is achieved thanks to the firm’s client-focused approach and dedication to quality; “Working with clients who are predominantly environmentally conscious HNW individuals in search of the extraordinary, HollandGreen creates beautiful homes that not only delight clients in the here-and-now but are designed to provide a lasting legacy for generations to come. From their first meeting with us to the final handover, our clients benefit from the thrilling synergy of architects, interior and landscape designers working seamlessly together across these disciplines and delivering truly unique homes. We use innovative technology like point cloud scanning, 3D modelling and VR at various stages of design to help our clients gain first-hand understanding of how the new space will look and feel, and build that connection to it before a single brick is laid. “This focus on innovation is central to our success, as we continually seek to do what we do better, we have looked to simplify the process to make it more understandable and to remove ambiguity. With creative, imaginative designs, a clearly signposted route through the process, impeccable delivery and a clear matrix-based pricing structure, we are a natural choice for potential clients with the ambition to create something wonderful.” Over the years the firm has worked on a variety of projects, supporting clients and helping them to create stunning spaces they can cherish. Ben uses one of the firm’s most recent undertakings as an example to showcase the team’s working methods; “One of our recent projects, is River House, a pavilion style New Build on the water’s edge next to a Grade II* Listed manor house in Oxfordshire. Our client acquired the riverside plot with the dream of creating a unique family home that made the most of uninterrupted views across the upper reaches of the River Thames. Although sensitive to the cultural significance of the immediate environment – and the village beyond – the client HollandGreen Architecture, Interiors & Gardens: Most Innovative High-End Residential Architecture Practice - England HollandGreen Architecture, Interiors & Gardens is a Residential Architectural practice with Studios in Hampton, Thame and the Cotswolds working on projects in London, the South East and up into the Cotswolds. As partners Ben Holland and Stephen Green highlight, the extensive reach of the practice is a testimony to the level of excellence that the firm achieves in each and every project it has the privilege to undertake. S was keen to commission a confident, contemporary design that would add an important new chapter to the history of the area. “This project has not been without its challenges, but we have worked hard to overcome them. There were many planning and environmental constraints to the successful development of this plot. Situated within the Green Belt and in proximity to an established, historically important manor house in leafy Sutton Courtenay, the site required a carefully calibrated approach that would marry the desires of the owner with the requirements of the local planning and conservation teams. Construction on this unique project, which represents the ideal – an exciting collaboration between client, designers, planners and conservators that has elicited a unique interpretation of a clear creative vision, has already begun. The result we are aiming for is a contemporary, light-filled riverside home with perfectly framed views of the Oxfordshire countryside that will provide a tranquil retreat for generations to come.” As they look to the future, Ben and Stephen are keen to highlight the fact that HollandGreen will continue to craft wonderful spaces that will enhance the natural landscape in which they are built and meet the needs of even the most discerning of clients. “Moving forward, we will remain on the lookout for exciting opportunities to create wonderful living spaces for our clients and generating beautiful family homes. Increasingly we are being asked to replace existing properties in poor condition but in great locations in the country with modern, energy efficient homes. With our studios located in the Thames Valley, we have been helping families achieve their dream of riverside living. Our designs are carefully crafted to capture the essence of our clients’ vision, delivering homes that make the most of their setting and delight. We love working on riverside properties – designing a house on the waterfront is an exciting challenge that, despite some of the associated complexities, sparks exceptional results.”
