Replacement Dwelling, North Yorkshire

Planning permission has been granted for a proposed replacement dwelling on a sloped site near Harrogate. The site comprises of a large plot with an extended dwelling in poor state of repair and associated garaging and kennels. The client was presented with several options which were obtained from an in-office competition between staff members, once the client had picked their preferred design this was rationalised and revised to form the three bedroom dwelling with garaging that will be moved forward. The use of Cor-Ten steel cladding on top of the natural stone base was the clients preferred choice from a series of design samples that looked at materials from the local vernacular and design precedents.
