Tree Tops consented

31 July 2020 by Chris Gray

Contemporary Architecture Residential TreeTops 01 jpa

JPA has achieved planning consent, under delegated powers, for two dwellings near Belvedere Castle in Devon. 

The site is a now redundant agricultural portion of land, containing a large existing barn which was previously used for cattle and housing sheep. This sits in the north-west corner of the site, against a back drop of large trees. JPA was appointed to review an existing consent awarded under 'Class Q' of the NPPF, and through positive pre-application discussions with the Local Authority, submitted a scheme to replace the barn with two dwellings that offered a positive architectural improvement over the consented scheme. 

Our proposal creates 2x 230m2 houses, each sitting within its own walled enclosure on the footprint of the existing barn and hardstanding - a reference to a farmyard typology. Each house adopts a rural palette of masonry walls constructed of local stone at ground floor, with a dark-stained timber clad upper storey. Roofs are in slate. The boundaries between the domestic and agricultural land are designed to provide a barrier between livestock and residents, with a traditional ha-ha wall, whilst allowing uninhibited views out.
