Sixtowns Road dwelling, Draperstown
This project was a new build 1 & Â½ storey dwelling for a newly married couple. Their desire was for a more traditional style and through our initial discussions we thought it appropriate that it could take took influence from the local vernacular dwellings in the surrounding area. The brief was worked up with the client and a 3D model was prepared to allow them to easily see how it would look within the context of the site. The site itself was located within an area of outstanding natural beauty and therefore the dwelling had to be sympathetically designed so as to nestle within the site and not be over prominent.
As part of the planning submission a design concept statement was required, this was prepared by us and this helped explain the how the design was developed, this in turn helped it go through planning with no amendments or delays.
