Proposals for a Sensitive Location;
Utilising 3rd Party Qualification to Demonstrate Quality
For a sensitive site in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the edge of a local settlement plan, a careful and responsive design process was key to securing planning for a high performing contemporary home for our Clients.
The strategy for the application allowed us to undertake third party qualification on the quality of the design to reassure the Local Planning authority, demonstrating that the proposal merits “outstanding” design.
This was undertaken with the Design Review Panel and was an important part of securing the consent. This peer review demonstrated our consideration for site character and context, design strategies, dwelling provisions, landscape, sustainable design and accessibility.
As a result of this careful design process and review, we have been able to create a unique, high quality, sustainable and accessible design for our Client, taking full advantage of the incredible views from the sloping site across the North Wessex Downs.
We approach each project with our high quality site appraisal, adding tangible value through considered and innovative design. Each proposal is unique and responsive to its location, and also to our Clients. We design for people.
If you have a site or project which would benefit from our approach, get in touch.
