JPA has secured consent for a new dwelling on a former farm site of nearly 5 acres overlooking Glastonbury Tor in Somerset. The site, which contains two large portal-framed barns, had an existing Class Q approval for the conversion of agricultural buildings to a new home.
The house, a series of three mono-pitched pavilions, cluster together around a courtyard, and provides a contemporary take on the local farm settlements seen in the locality. Stone is used on the public facades, external garden walls and chimney, while a dark-stained timber cladding is adopted for high level walls and the fronts of the living and bedroom wings.
The house reduces the built volume and the hardstanding of the former farm yard on the site by nearly half. The house is expected to complete by summer 2020.Read more
