Situated in an area of Open Countryside and within the South Ribble Greenbelt, this site was a completely empty greenbelt agricultural field with no previous developments / structures or planning history.
The initial approach for this site included gaining permission for a stable block to house the clients horse, along with a change of use on the site for the keeping of horses. Following this we submitted a planning application for a small single storey dwelling on the site. Both applications were successful at the first attempt.
We have since submitted subsequent applications for a larger dwelling following a change in the clients brief. We worked closely with the client to create a design for their 'forever home'. They favored a traditional look property with dormer windows and lower eaves using random stone for the main material choice.
During the concept design stage we produced a 3D walkthrough of the proposed designs so that the clients could understand each space and how the completed building would look and feel. We produced a detailed planning application and following positive comments from the planning officer we received approval.
At the heart of our design philosophy lies a strong commitment to sustainable living, exemplified by our fabric-first approach. Through careful selection of materials and attention to detail, we have created a dwelling with exceptional energy efficiency, minimizing its carbon footprint and reducing reliance on external resources.
