Project Description

Long Four Acres is a self-build development of 14 units located in Mulbarton, Norfolk. As well as designing Plot 14 for the original land owner, we were asked to develop example house types to explore the scale and layout that can be accommodated within the approved ‘plot passport’ (building code) for plots on the northern side of the site. The proposed layouts are based on a courtyard arrangement in order to maximize south facing windows (to make the most of solar gain). The courtyard also provides a south facing secondary amenity space in addition to the rear garden. Accommodation includes 4 bedrooms, ensuites, dining/kitchen, utility room, living room, downstairs cloakroom and an additional reception room/playroom. A double-height space has been created above the dining area in one house type. The design can be adapted to work with a pitched or flat roof as shown. The plots are currently being marketed by www.custombuildhomes.co.uk.
