A Garden & Three Houses.
This book celebrates architect Peter Aldington’s three village houses and a garden which were designed and built in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire, in the 1960s. The internationally acclaimed scheme won a Royal Institute of British Architects award and the three houses have been designated listed buildings. Exceptional and influential examples of modern architecture, they display compactness and privacy, variety and unity.
It is a vibrant visual journey through the garden and houses, which constitute a fusion of modernist and traditional approaches. Built in an ancient village, yet making innovative use of concrete, glass and wood, the three houses are enveloped by a glorious varied garden and stand as a fine example of modern architecture which harmonises with its environment.
