Whitehall Farm, Cambridgeshire
Acting on behalf of the landowner, we managed this process successfully through an initial pre-application followed by a full planning application - submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council and dealt with under delegated powers.
The site sat next to a series of existing barns which had been converted to residential use some time ago. Our concept for the site was for a farmhouse to sit towards the side and front of these, with two further units sitting behind to form a courtyard. The design layout references aspects of similar historic layouts seen in the local area.
The farmhouse was presented as a more traditional design, with this approach suiting the more traditional aspects of the existing street scene; a slightly more contemporary feel was developed for the barns behind which picked up on aspects of character of other nearby buildings, as well as allowing for appreciation of the orientation and views.
