A change of scene

John and Judith Turner had always lived in period properties, but an unexpected phone call led to them revising their retirement plans and self-building an energy efficient, contemporary home in an old walled garden
The bedroom’s glazed doors are fitted to a cantilevered, angled section, preserving privacy
The original garden site sloped upwards at the back, shaping the raised entrance into the Turners’ new home. The double-height glass-and-steel porch was custom-made by Benchmark Windows
