Sitting within an area of outstanding natural beauty, consideration had to be given to the Cotswolds design code and sensitivity towards nature and the surrounding local buildings. The proposals were developed in the context of an approved outline scheme which enabled us to reflect local character and keep mature trees.
Generous spaces both inside and out were key, these provide leisure and community spaces for future residents. We designed the homes by adopting a village street style creating variety in heights and fenestration design on a homely scale. The new home links 'houses' made with local materials with strong sustainable features.
Outside we have suggested mixing meadow grasses in a natural environment with mown paths highlighting its rural appeal.
The building is about to commence on site and is due to complete in mid-2018.
