THE 100K HOUSE
Project to design and construct a new family house (in a conservation area) for £100,000.
The client came to us with fixed budget and a simple brief to increase the size of his current family home. After extensively appraising the existing house Space AP proposed the idea that it would be more cost effective to demolish his existing home and replace it with a modern 5 bed timber framed home (to code for sustainable homes level 4) within his budget. As the site was within a conservation area Space AP successfully made the case to the planners that a house of this standard would improve the area, with the planners receiving letters of support for the proposal from local residents.
The proposal was granted planning permission in November 2013.
