Planning Approved!

More Good News – after a few ‘discussions’ with the Planning Department we are pleased to get a phonecall today confirming that this proposal for a dwelling in rural Co Armagh will be approved. Inspiration for the scheme of integrated simple rural forms – a cottage and a barn – came from the small holdings in the locality. The north facing roadside public elevation has small traditionally proportioned openings while the rear southern elevation has large expanses of glazing linking to the private garden. All cars are restricted to the front courtyard to maximise the links between inside and out without a cumbersome driveway carving up the site.
