The Ridley House sits within a 0.29 hectare site in a Conservation Area on the east shore of the River Severn, just south of the Bevere weir and lock and replaces a derelict a two-storey early 19th century cottage. It is located in a 3b Flood Zone and the house to be replaced flooded most recently in January 2014. To deal with the flood risk, the proposed house is elevated on slender columns. The linear form is divided, with the southern wing a single level containing living spaces, and the northernmost wing a two-storey volume containing bedrooms. The central junction provides the entrance lobby. The three-bedroomed house is clad in a combination of vertically and horizontally-boarded sweet chestnut cladding treated with Sioo:x to achieve a low-maintenance, uniformly light, silvered finished appearance. The chimney and service piers are to be built using a high-quality facing brick in a grey/buff colour, anchoring the house to the site. The project received planning consent in April 2018.
