After moving onto Church Hill and falling in love with the location, we embarked on significant works to our own property and access way, including moving power lines beneath the ground.

During these works we began to dream of building a really special landmark structure that would seamlessly blend into and enhance the landscape. Our land beside our current house seemed perfect to try to achieve that aim.

We needed to get “it” spot on, and that takes time, immense effort and a lot of money. The area deserves it though and we hope to reap the rewards by living in what will be a truly special place.

Squirrel Design

A small award winning, multi-disciplined, creative and dynamic architectural practice that has been established in the town of Chagford for over 25 years. Squirrel Design services domestic and commercial markets offering solutions on large and small projects in this country and abroad. The past decade has seen an increase in commissions for individual houses following the success of some ground breaking designs and the resulting publicity.

The practice has also been closely involved in specialist building manufacture and recently won an award from the Royal College of Art and Times newspaper for a building completely manufactured offsite. Some of the manufacturing techniques used in the award winning building will be enhanced and influence the design of the proposal.

MICK O'CONNOR

As leader of the design team my role has been to harness the skills and experience of the  members and use them to shape and mould the embryonic concept into an exciting, innovative, yet highly functional building of outstanding architectural merit. I am looking forward to working with the team and client to transform our dreams and aspirations into reality.

One of the most exciting and interesting factors of the Hux Shard design for me is the process that turned the simple concept of a sculpture in the landscape into a dwelling of outstanding architectural merit and innovation; all with a unique sense of fun and intrigue.

ALEX O'CONNOR

As part of the design team my key roles within the project have varied from initial concept design development, co-ordination of design presentation preparation and delivery, model making and 3D visualisation. Using this skill base has enabled the proposal to be shown at numerous scales and levels of detail using varied media, culminating in a proposal that not only shows how it integrates into the landscape but how it’s form and interior occupation assimilates with the proposals stature of being of the highest architectural standards.

Conveying the complexities of this proposal to provide a clear and concise appraisal of how this project will assimilate into the landscape have been my most important contributions to date.

The Hux Shard project encompasses a fusion of many individual features that have produced a building of outstanding architectural merit and innovation with a unique sense of fun and intrigue; it will produce more energy than it consumes and significantly improve the biodiversity of its immediate surroundings – features that will hopefully influence and improve future the quality of build in rural areas.
