New Houses in Herefordshire
KODA architects have worked closely with many stakeholders to prepare and submit a planning application to Herefordshire Council for ten, barn style, new houses in Herefordshire. The development maximises the development potential of the site whilst meeting client defined targets of being responsible developers delivering high spec and affordable accommodation in rural communities. Biodiversity of the site is also enhanced through a carefully thought out enhanced landscaping scheme and wildlife corridors.
The design centred around a spine road which provides access across the whole site. Generously spaced along this road, the mixture of new housing is formed of plots including two, three and four bed dwellings, all with generous garden plots and garaging. The design is a contemporary interpretation of a barn style development which is the vernacular in the area. The language of the buildings, maximises views over private gardens and over the wider Herefordshire Countryside. Enhanced planting provides a verdant urban extension to the existing settlement.
