Residential New Build for a 7 House Development

Adam Knibb Architects were appointed to make alterations to a site with existing planning permission for a seven house development. The development company approached us to review the existing scheme and see what exciting elements had been 'missed' or 'ill-considered' from the initial architects scheme.

The site comprises of three, two bedroom units, a three bedroom unit and three much larger four bedroom units. 

Minor amendment applications were delicately used to approach the local Horsham planning department with the aim of achieving a more contemporary exterior but not to elevate the alterations to a new planning application & associated costs for the developers. The design which works on a simple palette of materials features dark brick plinths, contemporary glazing and recessed vertical brick panels to produce asymmetrical facades. In addition to the exterior, our work included extensive re-planning of the interiors to accommodate contemporary living.
