Material Focus | Charlotte Park

Charlotte Park was the focus of a recent short film by our supplier No 1 Roofing. The timeless materiality of Charlotte Park is celebrated; a family home designed to last for generations.

Commenting on the project our Design Principal, Michael Kilkeary said: “We’ve layered natural materials to give the architecture and interiors a richness of texture and have looked to the ranches of Napa Valley and new Zealand, as well as elements of European farmhouses to create an identity for the home that is not of one place or time.


The Equine Sessions

Our design team was given a comprehensive lesson in the world of horse care this week at Charlotte Park, one of our notable acreage projects.

Director Darren Mills touched on the history and psychology of horses while demonstrating the variety and uses of saddlery and tack. Darren called on the expertise of his veteran farrier, Michael, to demonstrate how to shoe a horse and look after their feet using Darren’s horses Rumba and Wednesday as his subjects.
