New Houses, Inkberrow

DJD Architects achieved planning permission for two large new detached properties on a sensitive site in Inkberrow in 2014. The site lay outside of the settlement boundary, within a Conservation Area and close to a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Leading a team including planning consultant, landscape architect, archaeologist and ecologist, DJD Architects developed a scheme that is sensitive to the conservation area, using brick, tile and timber but in a contemporary design.

The site arrangement is designed to maximise the views of the open countryside out over the valley and scheduled ancient fort below, whilst screening the development to minimise its impact on the landscape. The unit designs themselves open up to the views at the rear.
