The Hus

Project Details

Open Plan One-Storey Home.

Commended at the Waverley Design Awards 2019, β€˜The Hus’ is a bright and open plan one-storey home built in the back garden of the owner’s former home and set amidst open fields and greenery. Designed in partnership with Scandia-Hus and the clients, a retired former architect, this build was the realisation of the clients dream for a contemporary, low maintenance, future-proof home.

Built with the understanding that contemporary design can also be homely, the home has a mix of open plan space and separate living areas. The layout of the 3000 sq ft home allows for privacy (the home is also ran as a B&B) with bedrooms and study tucked away and a flexible open entertaining space.

An energy efficient design with underfloor heating, large windows and sliding doors that allow all year-round natural light and making the most of the views of the surrounding fields.

Work Scope as main contractor:

  • Management Excavations and construction of piled foundations
  • Construction of property
  • Installation of all associated services
  • Installation of kitchens & bathrooms
  • Decorations, floor and wall finishes
  • Construction of new block drives
  • External hard & soft landscaping



From the first spade in the ground to the last touch of paint work, Compass were with us all the way.

When embarking on building our own home journey we knew we needed a professional and highly regarded main contractor.

We heard about Compass Construction as they had recently completed a couple of new build houses in our road. They looked good and we managed to take a look round them so we knew the high quality Compass produced. They were also recommended to us by a neighbour as a good company to work with.

We chose Compass out of four bidders to build our new contemporary home. The quotes were similar but we chose them because we could tell we would get on well with Steve and Richard, the owners.

They are excellent with a very professional but easy to get on with attitude and an eye for detail and quality. We did an almost full knockdown then rebuild of a brick and stone house in the heart of the Surrey Hills and they did a beautiful job; on time, on budget and not one argument or problem that was not immediately sorted.
