This replacement dwelling is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within a SSSI, on the edges of Frensham Common.
The innovative structure allowed a much larger replacement dwelling than the planners’ rules would otherwise have allowed whilst remaining subservient to its sensitive location.
Although the house is very modern in character, the selection of a curved zinc roof and oak board rain screen cladding evokes the small agricultural buildings typical of the area.
Internally, a minimalist interior was designed with a series of moveable partitions and doors, creating a flexible family home with open vaulted ceilings. Although unashamedly modern, this house fits into the landscape as if it has always been there.
Fabulous! Thanks so much. Really appreciate your expertise and support.Private client, Surrey Extension to listed building.
“A most thorough planning application, well prepared, well researched and in tune with its environs. A unique design which makes best use of its surroundings.”
“One would always like cost to be kept to a minimum but we feel that we could have been charged a lot more, so we think the service was good value.”
“We got planning! It’s all online. Thanks for your help in putting together a really good set of documents.”
“The council… would suggest this design and layout be adopted for other similar developments.”
“The extension was the right decision, it looks great and the roof design makes it look as if it’s always been here. Great design!”
