Our clients want to downsize and stay on site by relocating from the family home into an existing annex in the garden. This would allow their daughter and her family to move into the house. Our brief was to reconfigure, modernise and extend the sub-standard annex to provide additional floor space sufficient for a couple long term. Our design provides two bedrooms, bathroom and contemporary open plan kitchen, dining and living room with magnificent panoramic views across the valley.
The annex is located in a visually prominent area of the Bristol & Bath Green Belt and the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB). Working with planning consultants, Planning Sphere, we have devised a design strategy that stands the best chance of planning success whilst meeting our client's needs. The application is supported by our Landscape Appraisal that demonstrates our design offers an improvement over the existing annex and it can be successfully integrated into the AONB.
