Bell House, Southampton

Bell House


A new build private house on an exceptional hilltop site overlooking the River Hamble, the Solent and the Isle of Wight, with a design derived from the nautical interests of the client and the local building tradition. The house, affording stunning views, is almost totally obscured from public view by dense tree cover.

“Re-Format were from a list of architects recommended by the conservation officer. They seemed to excel at bringing natural light into buildings, which was one of our main aims. They immediately understood, and were fantastic to work with – adding interest by carefully detailing the design.”
