Paragraph 79 House
We have designed a new modern six bedroom Paragraph 79 family home on land adjacent to a stud farm and training facility in the beautiful Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Area of Great Landscape Value.
Our client appointed us for our expertise in navigating the complex planning and heritage site requirements, whilst offering a contemporary architectural design as is their preference.
Any proposal for a new build home had to strictly comply with the NPPF Paragraph 79 criterion and be a design of exceptional quality; truly outstanding or innovative, reflecting the highest standards in architecture, and would help to raise standards of design more generally in rural areas. The building must also significantly enhance its immediate setting, and be sensitive to the defining characteristics of the local area.
Our house has open plan living at heart and is oriented to maximise stunning views of the English countryside. Double height living spaces make the most of the natural light and outdoor views whilst wooden louvres visually soften the glazed exterior of the building, sensitively incorporating it into the surrounding landscape.
