About this project
THE GRANGE SUMMER HOUSE
New build Summer House within the grounds of a substantial detached dwelling believed to date from the mid 19th Century and situated within a Green Belt.
The Summer House was designed and built within the strict parameters of the Town and
Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order and the permitted
development rights therein. To compliment the existing dwelling, the design of the structure was influence by traditional bandstands, many of which originated in the Victorian Era as the British brass band movement gained popularity.
Not to detract from the higher status of the adjacent dwelling, in contrast the detailing of the new building was intentionally kept simple and understated. High quality traditional materials were specified to compliment the existing dwelling, including locally sourced stone, natural slate and cast iron guttering.
