Forge Design Studio has achieved planning consent for an extension to Redcot, Carters Clay in the Test Valley on behalf of the Scott Family. The site has a complex planning history having had two previous refusals for development. Working very closely with the client a new concept was developed which created a low profile, largely single storey, extension in the form of a courtyard.
It was considered important to ensure that the extension is seen as subservient to the main house and the impact on the views across the adjacent open countryside were carefully considered. A final resolution on the current planning application is expected early in 2015.
