Richard Tosic Architects were commissioned to assist with the statutory consents including planning permission and building regulations approval.
The site had a planning consent for two new dwellings, within a World Heritage Site. The client had bought one of the plots, with the design for a three bedroomed, two storey dwelling. The design emulates a simple stone outbuilding with a timber clad first floor level. The ground floor has an open plan kitchen living dining area, with three bedrooms on the first floor. The unit also uses an air source heat pump for hot water and under floor heating. The stone is local to the site, and Velfac windows and doors were installed.
The garden is south facing, and there are two parking spaces adjacent to the dwelling.
The contractors were Quick & Sons based in Crowlas.
