New build dwelling on garden plot

Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands


We undertook a feasibility study for a new-build property in the Staffordshire Moorlands exploring the potential of a garden plot.

The site was purchased with the benefit of planning permission granted for a conventional 4 bed detached dwelling, however, the design was generic and didn't respond to the characteristics of the site. 

Surrounded by neighbouring properties, but benefiting from distant scenic views, the building was designed on stilts, with all of the main living accommodation at first-floor level.
