Bannerdown, Housing

The practice received planning consent for a scheme of 6 luxury detached houses forming a courtyard on the outskirts of Bath. The site is within a conservation area and designated as an SSSI. The building forms are derived from a typical rural model, each unit being conceived as a number of stone ‘outbuildings’ connected with timber and glass. Each house is split level, and open to views yet private from the main approach. Locating the master bedrooms at the highest points and providing them with external terraces allows for commanding views across the valley.
