The Modern House

The Modern House, an estate agency that specialises in British modernist and contemporary architecture, features some of the most stunning architectural gems and the stories that go with them. Their Journal recently featured a property called Sewell’s Orchard, a large, detached house in rural Hertfordshire designed by the architect Mary Medd in 1934. The property was acquired by new owners, Heidi and Steve, in autumn 2012. Heidi heads up the design agency Together Design and Steve is the head of user experience and design at the BBC. This inherent design sense led them to pursue an extension and redesign that is sympathetic to Medd’s original intentions. We are proud that Marmoreal could find a place in such an inspiring story.
