Warwickshire County Council has approved plans for a notable new project in a very picturesque part of the county.
Proposals drawn up by luxury design studio Rigby & Rigby have been given the green-light, paving the way for a revamp of an existing 1960s bungalow into something closer to the original manor house that once stood on the site.
Rigby & Rigby Architecture, led by associate director and architect, Dave Ellis, made an application for a dwelling that addressed the “unattractive” aesthetic of the current iteration. The client sought to update the property to “reflect the history of the estate…and create a sustainable and energy efficient home for their growing family”.
The studio’s neoclassical design garnered “resounding” support from the local authority; the council’s planning officer noted the proposal’s uniqueness and described the scheme as “truly exceptional”.
The largely-new home will retain the 20th century bungalow, recladding, extending and refurbishing it to meet the latest building standards. It should be quite the transformation…
“What had initially appeared to be an arduous journey through the bureaucratic intricacies of the UK planning system became a testament to [our] adeptness in negotiation, strategic planning, and creative design. The outcome has exceeded our client’s expectations of what could be achieved, and we are proud to evidence our capability in supporting and delivering their vision.” – Iain Johnson, CEO and Founder.
