The Orchards, Norfolk
Tucked away down a side road, this proposal occupies the back-garden of an existing 1970s bungalow. Our brief was to explore the potential of the site with the local planning authority with a view to creating a residential development in this highly desirable location in Taverham.
The resultant scheme, which was awarded planning permission, works with the existing characteristics of the site, which is heavily wooded.
Sensitive but strategic thinning of the trees created a site for two detached dwellings that make use of the site’s natural topography to tuck in behind the existing bungalow .
We worked closely with the local planning authority, referring to relevant design guides and precedents to develop an appropriate palette of materials and detailing.
Careful orientation of the dwellings offers privacy to all residents as well as views into the mature landscape and private external space in which to take advantage of the secluded setting…the inhabitants of which include slow-worms, bats and great-created newts!
