Its obvious that a house that has won RIBA House of the Year 2017  is going to be special, but even that doesn't prepare you for the sheer glory of Caring Wood.  CLT built and gracefully designed, this house is mighty in every way.

Urban Front supplied 7 doors in total to this house - some were used in the internal courtyard and some are hidden in the chestnut cladding on parts of the house. The work we did with the architects involved a lot of detail ensuring the doors would not stand out too much, and specifically centred around the front door which had stand out elements on the face of the door.

We love the lighting around the entrance and the fact that the door fits in very well with the particularly Scandinavian look of the interiors. A lovely country home to be enjoyed by many generations.

Doors used on this house were all bespoke E98 Passive Doors in Chestnut to match the cladding.

Caring Wood is a country home for three generations of the same family, incorporating formal, communal and private spaces. Set in 84 acres its brief was to embody the spirit of the English country house and estate in a design which would embrace its context and landscape, while providing a carbon neutral response to climate change. The project was subject to a rigorous planning process to achieve consent under PPS7
