About the project

Located within a national scenic area and outwith the development area it was a challenge to get planning permission but following consultation this was eventually granted. The buildings blend into the site with all excavated materials being retained on site, the stone being selected out for use in the walls, the subsoil/topsoil utilized for enhancing screening whilst retaining as much of the existing landscape as possible. Short-listed for the Doolan Award in 2011, commended in the IAA Northern Awards 2012 and short-listed for the Civic Trust 2013 Awards.
