The design for Amberley was a direct response to the site, its sylvan setting, and the client's desire for a contextual modern home.

In principle, the design consists of two pitched roof structures connected by a single-storey glass pavilion, making reference to the vernacular rural forms seen in the wider context. The exterior is clad in Kebony Character timber which echoes the silver tones of the surrounding birch trees assisting in blending the house into its setting.
