The existing site is a 10m x 6m brick paved parking area and has had four previous
planning applications refused by the council for various reasons. Because of these
refusals the land was inexpensive, but because of the planning refusal history there
was effectively a guide on ‘what not to build’. From this we have put together a
The main issues in designing a building for this site were the danger of flood risk,
visual impact on the view from the street, overlooking into neighbours’ gardens and
windows, parking, retaining sight lines from the neighbour’s drive way (house to
the left) and the potential for cutting off light to the neighbour’s windows (the
house to the right).
These issues informed the design so that the plan and form of the proposed house
could be developed. The application was supported with further investigations in
3D modelling of shadows and sunlight at various times of the day and overcast daylight
calculations. The application is currently being processed.
