Houses for Private Clients

Chippenham Lodge Stud

Parkside Chippenham

A new 10-Bedroom house for the owners of the 128-acre estate replacing an existing nineteenth-century house which was no longer fit for purpose. The client is the Executive Chairman of an international software and automation company for whom business entertainment is a necessity

Following a series of unsuccessful designs by others, Barefoot and Gilles was appointed to deliver the building in time for a family celebration. Our brief was to design the house to accommodate a large influx of visitors during the racing season but also to function as a family home throughout the year.

The house is formally arranged and designed to provide a crisply-detailed example of twenty-first century classicism giving sumptuous accommodation for the owners and a series of self-contained suites for visitors.
