The site had a modest bungalow on it sat within a modest domestic curtilage.  The plot came with additional land that the previous owner had tried to use as domestic curtilage as can be seen from the image above.

This was a very challenging proposal, not just because of the curtilage issue but because, whilst the replacement dwelling would still be single storey, it had to have a sizeable footprint, as can be seen above.  This was due to the fact that our client's needed to provide ancillary accommodation for their adult disabled daughter.  The architect cleverly came up with a design of three linked pavilions, one for the daughter, one for living space and one for bedroom space.  The result was a low slung contemporary design that would have minimal impact on the area.  The result was approval with the minimum of delay.
