City Architecture Office have secured consent for a new family home in Abergavenny Conservation Area, Monmouthshire.
The planning report by the local authority praised the design stating, ‘ it is considered that a building of the type proposed will preserve or enhance the character of the Conservation Area’
The planning decision for a contemporary building was given under delegated powers on previously undeveloped land.
A practical design solution to the building footprint was achieved to mitigate any effect on the bordering tree roots on a complex site.
The new home will be super insulated with a low-carbon footprint including renewable energy sourced from photovoltaic panels.
City Architecture Office is currently also working on a project within the Edinburgh Old Town UNESCO World Heritage Site.
