A new design is evolving for a single dwelling within the Burwell conservation area. It's a tricky site with an unfortunate planning record, but we think this simple solution that sits quietly within its context will make an amazing small house.
As we draw closer to this years end, two of these small projects are due to start on site.
Pegg's Cottage is a Grade II Listed building with 20th Century additions. Having considered and dismissed a number of alternative houses and locations, our clients who requested our opinion on design and layout opportunities 'pre-purchase', will shortly commence works to extend an existing breakfast/dining room and remodel the first floor accommodation. New contemporary glazed additions will be complemented by repurposing existing field flint walling to make a stronger connection with the secluded garden.
Ferry Path will also commence some enabling works initially, before getting under way early next year.
The need for improved living space does not only apply to old properties. We are currently pursuing two intervention projects that look to redress the balance of inadequate living space, now common place with new houses. More about those shortly…
