Planning application submitted for new sustainable country house in Cheshire

April 14, 2022

A planning application has been submitted for a replacement country house in Cheshire, distinctively Georgian in style with all the attendant symmetry, scale and volume.  The design by ADAM director Robbie Kerr responds to the client’s aspiration to build a great exemplar home in a modern classical manner, combining holistic sustainability considerations such as sourcing materials, fabric, energy production and use. The application also includes the replacement of the existing tennis court and outbuildings, and the relocation of the existing primary entrance.

The house has been complimented at two different design review panels for demonstrating an ability to raise the standards of classical design more generally in the area. The RIBA backed Traditional Architecture Group (TAG) design review panel and the author of the Cheshire East Character Appraisal Assessor were involved as part of this process to ensure that the design is robustly reviewed by peers.

The new house is to be set in extensively landscaped gardens designed by Elizabeth Tyler Landscape Design, of a design, scale and quality that compliments and enhances the surrounding area, and will bring land and architecture seamlessly together.
