The site is also located adjacent to a Non-Designated Heritage Asset, therefore the proposal needs to sensitively address both the Open Countryside, the adjacent property, and maximise natural light.
The client required a large 5-bedroom property which includes a health and leisure suite, a home studio and office for working from home, and a large garage. However, it was important to minimise visibility and scale due to the Open Countryside location.
The proposal translates the traditional features of the adjacent property, into a contemporary, sustainable response to the site. The solution included creating a South-facing courtyard, and orientating the entrance to the side with a new access lane, the property then benefits from both natural light and outward views with various external spaces.
