Chiltern Cottage


Chiltern Cottage

A Semi-Detatched Grade 2 Listed Flint Cottage in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Greenbelt.

We developed two schemes for this cottage, a large scheme that added a rear extension and additional bedroom at first floor, and a small scheme that limited the works to reconfiguring the ground floor without an extension. 

Although both schemes were received well by the planning and heritage officers at a Pre-Application Enquiry. Our larger scheme was acceptable for the Listed Building aspect - the Heritiage Officer liked the design - unfortunately Greenbelt policy was the restricting factor in this case.

The small scheme has recieved Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent. The changes we are making will make a really good improvement to the interior living space for relatively little intervention, making use of the garage to create an attractive open plan kitchen and dining space.

About Me  

Architecture should be uplifting and memorable. It should feel permanent and durable. It should be relevant to its place, framing key views and oriented to the climatic conditions, bringing natural light deep within. I am committed to producing unique and memorable spaces and are a delight to inhabit.
