Flight Farm Para 55
This 2.3 acre site, on the outskirts of Cheltenham, is set within an open glade that contributes to the character and quality of the site itself and to the wider landscape.
The proposed Para 55 dwelling sought to retain the two distinct open clearings found on the site and enable the new dwelling to enjoy views into those clearings rather than occupying them.
The conceptual design is derived from a combination of the site’s historic past, connection to quarrying and baking lime for mortar. Flight Farm’s main characteristic is the 11.7m chimney with a circular skylight which sits beside the main body of the house.
This striking feature is reminiscent of the traditional lime kilns that can be found in this part of the Cotswolds (AONB).
