Proposed Site Layout

The image above shows how four homes may be arranged on the site.

22x19xSK09 Plots 1 and 2 colour.pdf

Plots 1 & 2

These two 1 bedroom maisonettes take the form of a simple boarded barn typical of the Essex countryside.  Traditional materials (brick, boarding, clay plain tiles etc) are proposed to be used in a contemporary way.  The building has been designed to both face Bardfield Road and provide views along it towards Thaxted. The potential for overlooking has been carefully designed out.

Plots 3 & 4

These two 2 bedroom houses also reflect the character of nearby dwellings and outbuildings and that found in the wider Essex countryside.  The primary aspect of these homes is arranged to maximise views of their associated gardens, whilst addressing Bardfield Road and not creating overlooking issues.
