The scheme has been designed as a response to its unique location and existing site characteristics. It respects the location of the existing listed building, namely Gauntley House and also the locations of the retained on site buildings, namely BW6, BW3 and BW2.
Approaching the site along Smethurst Road we have designed a cluster of stone-faced buildings, which will form a street scene with Gauntley House and the recently converted stone barns. To the front of these properties we have suggested stone boundary walls, again reflecting the existing boundary walls. Moving from this group to the north we have designed another cluster of dwellings of differing heights and styles. Parking is located in secure enclosed overlooked areas away from the highway.
In conclusion we have designed a unique scheme, which responds to its location in a sympathetic and pleasing manner, using complimentary facing materials and boundary treatments. The scheme introduces spaces, which flow out into the open land surrounding the development, and introduces a network of permeability, which again moves out beyond the scheme into the existing public footpaths.
High quality hard and soft landscaping is proposed and dwellings have been designed in a style bespoke to this unique location. Buildings of historical importance have been retained and enhanced. An interesting range of building heights and massing has been created, none of which exceed the height/massing of the existing buildings on site.
