This new sustainable housing scheme on the edge of Dartmoor National Park helps to rejuvenate the local area and provides much-needed housing.
The mixed-use scheme converts a pub that was originally on the site into six two-bedroom houses, four apartments and two commercial units occupied by a bicycle shop and repair workshop. The design was supported throughout the planning process and uses local Dartmoor materials including slate, timber and stone. Landscaping was also carefully considered and includes native species such as field maple, hazel and hawthorn.
All six of the two-bedroom houses sold off-plan.
"Woodford Architecture provided excellent guidance on the overall concept and architectural detail. Their liaison and interaction with the other consultants and the local planning authority was very good. We found them easy and approachable, though also strong enough to ensure the original design principle was maintained, even under pressure from the client." – Client
