Built to replace an ugly 1960s house in a Conservation Area, the planning process nevertheless proved challenging and complex as the design concept required the re-orientation of the new house though 180 degrees and the establishment of a new vehicular access from a different (higher status) road. Consent was secured only on appeal, however this process was handled entirely in-house, reducing both the costs and timescale.
The resultant house is true to the Arts & Crafts traditions of Voysey and Baillie Scott; in terms of layout and design but perhaps more importantly materials and detailing.
What we did: design & consents/appeal, project management, general & specialist building
