New Houses Pair Near Saffron Walden

The site for these two new houses already benefited from an outline planning consent for a pair of dormer windowed cottages (with all matters reserved, except scale and access).

Our client, local building contractor / developer, Steven Reed of Reed Contracts Ltd, gave us a brief to redesign the pair of new houses, staying within the confines of the consent, but in a more contemporary way.

The identical design is mirrored and the properties share the same road access.

The houses are constructed from highly insulated prefabricated timber frame panels with a through coloured render external finish.

The horizontal timber used for cladding and louvres is Western Cedar, with the roofs finished with natural Spanish slate.


Note: ‘through coloured’ means the render is self-coloured so that it doesn’t need painting.
