Sandwich Para 79
The design of this house explores an interesting characteristic of other buildings in the vicinity, where the principal facade is simple, discreet and devoid of detail while the rear elevations are more elaborate.
This characteristic, along with the buildings south facing orientation, helps to maximise solar gain potential while allowing the house to be more expressive when viewed from the private rear garden.
Seen from the road on the north side, the form of this Para 79 dwelling is simple and reminiscent of a peg tiled agricultural barn, with a twist ! Moving around to the south side the carefully sculpted angles create drama and cleverly resolve the inside and outside spaces as well as opening up the building to south facing sun for free winter heating.
Hawkes Architecture in collaboration with Hughes Planning and Squires Young Landscape Architecture, are delighted to gain planning consent for this unique project, under National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) paragraph 79e. Granted by Dover District Council on the 21st June 2019, the scheme has been well received, gaining full support from The Design Review Panel.
