Our clients approached us with a wonderful site but with a very small and dilapidated chalet bungalow located in the Green Belt and an Area of Outstanding Beauty.
The property’s location severely limited the development potential of the original dwelling. However, through a combination of good design and our detailed knowledge of the planning process, we managed to achieve permission for a much larger house three storey house.
The cruciform shape of the house takes advantage of the steeply sloping site and its views while sitting between two mature oak tress. The 4m high curved windows fill the interiors with light while taking advantage of the views across the rolling countryside of the South Downs.
We are delighted to have received much praise for the design of this house, not least from the planners and council. The combination of our design and the client’s stunning garden has created a very special family home.
“We got planning! It’s all online. Thanks for your help in putting together a really good set of documents.”
“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!”
“The council… would suggest this design and layout be adopted for other similar developments.”
“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.”
Fabulous! Thanks so much. Really appreciate your expertise and support.Private client, Surrey Extension to listed building.
“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.”
