ARCHITECTURE OF OUTSTANDING MERIT
The proposed design seeks to enhance its context, creating a relationship between the open natural environment on and around the site, whilst respecting the neighbouring properties. This places the property to the top of the site, nestled between the two much larger existing properties adjacent. By breaking up the form of the building, creating an L-shape dwelling, the opportunity to diminish its impact is reinforced by design using a change of material between the two main wings. Using brick and timber cladding the building’s form is softened and connected to its landscape.
