Reed View, Trumpington, Cambridge
Trumpington, Cambridge, UK
Purchased with planning permission already approved this site offered the developer an opportunity to exploit the sites potential. It was only during the technical drawing stage of the previously approved 3 bedroom, chalet styled dwelling, that we realised it did not leave any room in the bedrooms for storage space along with a bed! We advised our client that we could do better and we obtained planning approval, via the local comity hearing process, for a much larger contemporary, four bedroom dwelling. Due to the existing boundary wall to the front of the site, we felt it appropriate to perch the first floor on top of this with the ground floor sitting deeper into the site plan, opening up access routes to the garden. This also gave us the opportunity to offer a very different aspect to all of the four elevation faces, responding to the differing context parameters which surrounded the site.
