 A House clad with flint gives a good combination of Architecture,Nature and Art which transcends Serenity.The Flint are arranged to create a tonal gradient across the Structure all from the landscape. It's Located at the Waddesdon Manor Estate .

 On the higher side of the building taller tresses are planted while on the tapped side shrubs are planted to gives it balance as well as good Shade.
 Flint material is rarely used in Architecture,but the use of Flint here makes it look original and solid .The building connotes lots of Terraces ,recesses and rooftops which provides a liveable and intriguing architecture yet blends with the countryside Landscape.

 The Bedroom interior design depicts Royalty with it's rich bold colours to compliment the alluring environment. A Large mirror looking out the window brings in reflections of the surrounding landscape.
 The Earth-tone colours make the interior space collide with the landscape ambience. The edges and trims gives it an edgy feel ,while the minimal use of Flint in the interior makes it look delicate from the inside .
