SDA Architecture was recently asked by one of its former clients to visit their completed home. SDA had designed the reinvented property from the initial conception back in early 2012 through to building regulations approval later that year. The project was then handed back to the client so they could carry out a self build project which had always been their ambition. Upon completion of the project the client was more than proud to show off their handy work and hopefully from the pictures you will see why.
The finished product matches exactly to the design and paired with the clients own interior design looks spectacular. The inspiration behind this project was always that the property would reflect the surrounding woodland materials thus modern detailed wood cladding was wrapped on areas of the exterior of the building. The exceptional views to the rear of the property were taken full advantage of by creating an abundance of glazing on the rear elevation but most importantly the design allowed the client and their children to live in the property as a family unit and use the space in a way that suited their lifestyle.
It was very rewarding and satisfying to revisit this property and see the family so happy living there as this was a particularly difficult proposal at the application stage given it sat within Greenbelt and the additional volume that was required to make the design work far exceeded what the local authority’s policy would normally allow. However with a strong design and a well thought out supporting statement the proposal was approved and the client now has the home of their dreams.
SDA Architecture are pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted for a another project located in the greenbelt and conservation area of Rufford. The project was received in a very positive manner by West Lancashire Planning Department who have nominated the project for West Lancashire Design Awards 2014.
The blend of glass, green oak timber frame, pan tile roofing and modern interior will transform this property to one of the finest properties in the Rufford area.
SDA Architecture completed a visit this week to review progress of a current self-build project involving the transformation of a 18th century stone cottage. The project is now really showing promise and the conceptual model is really transferring onto the site.
The large overhang detail and apex glazing detail will create a contemporary aspect to the rear of the property but in stark contrast the front has now been removed of the white render and paint to highlight the natural stone construction that was hidden beneath. This will be a very unique individual property when completed watch this space finish photographs and feature project review will be produced in summer 2014 on completion.
SDA Architecture has been commissioned to design a new build home of distinction in Lancashire, not normally a challenge for our designers, the only slight obstacle is that the home needs to be built on virgin land, that sits within green belt and is protected land via a conservation area restriction! We always say we love a challenge and ‘where there is a design there is a way!’ We will keep you posted on our progress.
SDA Architecture have recently been instructed to produce alterations to a semi-detached executive home that includes loft conversion with dormer, new internal layouts at ground, first and garage levels, new access landscaping and driveway.
