Norfolk, UK

Type: Residential

Status: Planning Approved

Set in the grounds of important Grade-II listed buildings, these new-build residential units use considered and sensitive material palettes, in a form that is striking and contemporary. Timber clad barns are suspended above a brick ‘plinth’ storey, with entrance porches clearly defined below.

The homes combine their linear form with a considered use of space. First-floor living accommodation offers south-facing aspects in to its river valley context, with breaks in their massing creating private rooftop terraces. At ground floor the distribution of glazing carefully reflects the adjacent heritage assets, while looking in to the private, planted courtyard.
