The main external facade of Sutton Lodge was built using the Clipsham Ashlar limestone, a prestigious, smooth stone which gives a very luxurious look. The gorgeous hues of the Clipsham Ashlar stone show up beautifully on the bespoke moulded columns that frame the main entrance to the property. The roof, made from artificial Collyweston slate, is tapered and then runs flat. This design allows the installation of the dormer windows but restricts the overall roof height of the property. If the roof line carried on up to an apex, the property would be impossibly tall.
As a Peterborough photographer, this project allowed me to explore my love of architecture and light, finding the right balance to highlight Sutton Lodge’s impressive stone features. You can see my full portfolio here.
