NEW BUILD HOUSES

Scroll down to see examples of our new build houses.

 

With all of our new build houses we begin by developing the brief with the client.

 

We develop your ideas and look at layout options, styles, tastes, budget, site context .

 

We develop the brief to maximise your chance of gaining planning permission, produce building regulations and detail design drawings and find builders. (at time of publishing we have a 100% record of gaining full planning permission for new build houses).

 

We manage all the design stages and consultants as we progress and we can advise on the various building contract options, administer the contract on site.

We also design for Developers,  Project Managers  and Design and Build Companies along with domestic clients.

Please call us on 07807459 350 or email us at paul@paulreedarchitects.com to arrange a free site visit, or just to chat about your project in more detail.

 

WHISPERING REEDS, PETT LEVEL HASTINGS

Approx Build Cost £380k

On the bank of a military canal and looking across to the beach. An upside down house evolved to maximise views from the main living spaces. The style developed from a local vernacular of box like timber clad buildings nearby, while expressing the horizontal elements to allow the building to settle into the landscape. Internally the ground floor corridors divert the route upstairs and away for the downstairs bedrooms for greater privacy. An angled garage is linked by a walkway and window seats in living spaces overlook the main entrance for greater security.

THE TREEHOUSE, WINCHESTER

Approx Build Cost £400k

Another upside down house, the client came to us with basic house plan ideas, we developed the design and brief creating a unique modernist characterful home. The facade materials change from side to side creating a different character facing each surrounding garden. The steep pitched roof is of smooth fibre cement tiles with hidden gutter detail and is designed to shed the build up of leaves without forming lichen. The shallow metal roofs vary in pitch and with bold lines and hidden gutters, with the corner window seat and horizontal banding give a dynamism to the facade.

WINSCOTT, CUCKFIELD

Approx Build Cost £600k

Set in the middle of a sloping field, the design developed into an organic element that falls naturally with the contours. A modernist design was favoured standing out in the field with facing materials made of render, and extra long bricks for texture. The pool begins to tie the building into the landscape and the horizontailty of the elements settle the building lower into the field.

NEW HOUSES SIDCUP AND DORKING

Approx Build Cost £290k -£400k

We have worked on a variety of more traditional designed new dwellings where the client has wanted something a bit more 'normal' or where we have established that the planning officers may be a little restricting in the style that may be allowed. In order to reduce risk we assess the options and play safe where necessary. Even with more traditional designs there can be scope internally to create interesting functional spaces. The Dorking house has an internal high level glass clerestory to allow light to pass along the house and create a sense of space, similarly the Sidcup house has a central stairwell surrounded by glass and rooflights above allowing light to pass down through the house into living spaces.

Start date on site both April 2020

HOUSE IN CROYDON

Approx Build Cost £250k

The existing site was a 10m x 6m brick paved parking area and had four previous planning applications refused by the council for various reasons. Because of these refusals the land was inexpensive, but because of the planning refusal history there was effectively a guide on ‘what not to build’. From this we developed a brief and put together a planning application.


The main issues in designing a building for this site were the danger of flood risk, visual impact on the view from the street, overlooking into neighbours’ gardens and windows, parking, retaining sight lines from the neighbour’s drive way and the potential for cutting off light to the neighbour’s windows.


These issues informed the design so that the plan and form of the proposed house could be developed. The application was supported with further investigations in 3D modelling of shadows and sunlight at various times of the day and overcast daylight calculations.


Planning permission was granted on this design and the client sold the site with the permission.

NEW HOUSES AND FLATS FEASIBILITY STUDIES PEACEHAVEN, SOUTHWATER AND BRIGHTON.

Approx Build Cost £400k -£1.2M

These feasibility studies were all commissioned to test the waters for pre-planning advice. I such cases we keep our fee to an absolute minimum to minimise the financial risk of the client at during the early stages of a design.

The flats were for 19 dwellings on South Coast Road Peacehaven. The planners liked the design but wanted us to go to public consultation regarding the fourth floor. To date this hasn't progressed any further but may be a development opportunity to anyone who is interested, please contact me if you are interested.

The Meadow House project in Southwater was a development outside of the village development curtilage. The pre-planning report liked the design but was questioned on its location in the village. A few years on the planners may have a different opinion.
