Project Description
The site is located within the Metropolitan Green Belt and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The footprint of a previous bungalow, which has been demolished, was still clearly visible on site. An extant planning permission existed for the erection of a replacement bungalow with basement accommodation.

Baca supplanted the extant planning permission with a building that made better use of the site, intelligently planned internally and with a similar area and volume of the former permission.

The proposal locates a single dwelling deeper into the site and is positioned so that any overlooking is onto flank walls only. This location also means that the rear elevation will not overlook neighbours.

The design is in keeping with character of the area and includes the use of renewable energy systems.
