Following the success of the nearby Church Croft development ctd architects were approached to design a scheme for the neighbouring piece of land.
A key influence to the design was its rural setting. This informed an approach that took precedent from the local vernacular and utilises a palette of traditional materials and forms to add to the character and context of the Caverswall Conservation Area.
The proposal comprises of 12 two, three, four and five bedroom new build dwellings, in a mixture of terraced, semi-detached and detached properties. The diversity within the scheme will to provide much needed homes to the Village and its amenities. The high quality design adds to the character and context, enhancing the setting of listed buildings that surrounding the site.
Detailed discussion were held with client to discuss approach to site and its context. This involved proactively instructing relevant consultants to provide supplementary planning reports. Regular meetings took place to ensure that the project was kept to a tight deadline.
Using the 2d topographic survey data initial sketch schemes and house types were produced by hand and in CAD. The proposal was extensively modelling in 3d using Sketchup and rendered to produce a detailed design scheme and visuals that proactively address potential planning concerns and demonstrate the high quality and contextual design of the proposed development scheme.
