Rural Housing

The scheme revitalises a garage development site and disused land within a rural village to provide a range of seven much needed affordable dwellings and a private house.

The dwellings match the rural layout of the surrounding properties and provide parking for the development, visitors and for neighbouring properties. The buildings formed from brick take contextual reference to the proportions of the openings and roofscape.

The scheme was developed though local resident consultations and meetings with the parish council which it gained support from. The dwellings are designed with future tenants in mind providing good living accommodation and storage for every house.
