This scheme proposes the construction of a two storey 5 bedroom family home with triple garage and annex flat for the applicant’s elderly parents. The property is designed to a high specification using quality construction methods and materials to create a unique executive style home.
The scheme has been designed to be overtly contemporary in its design but it acknowledges its conservation area setting by respecting the original features that enclose the site and the mature landscape setting. It also nods to the context through its design and selection of detail and facing materials. The building is essentially a series of intersecting cubes which are pushed and pulled back to create a series of interlocking planes. The cubic form is then broken up through the use of asymmetric vertical window and door openings and the disposition of the proposed cladding materials. The use of cubic forms allows us to give emphasis to the elements of the building which are to form the main focal points.
