Windley, Belper, Derbyshire

  • New residential dwelling on the site of a former saw mill with significantly modified levels
  • The planning application was for a change of use from employment to residential purposes
  • The site is situated within an area designated as a Special Landscape Area
  • The original brief was to undertake a Landscape Appraisal in order to review the site within the surrounding landscape and to prepare alternative design concepts for a residential dwelling
  • Montague Architects Ltd were subsequently appointed to prepare the building design
  • A landscape design was prepared to accompany the planning application which addressed the complex levels across the site and the close relationship with the surrounding agricultural landscape
  • The building design incorporated a curved green roof continuing the soft lines of the undulating landscape and maximise excellent outward views
  • The design approach, informed by the landscape setting, was complemented within the planning officers recommendation report and achieved a successful planning outcome.
