01. The Brief
Our clients needed an architect in Ashburton, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their New build residential development of 18 flats
02. Project Detail
The Ashburton Cattle Market site is situated in the heart of Ashburton, surrounded by historic and listed buildings. We have designed 18 apartments, housed in two blocks, split over three storeys. The timber structure will be clad with a combination of coloured render, slate hanging and local stone, designed to blend in with the local vernacular architecture. The design was developed in conjunction with the Environment Agency to address the inherent flood risk issues within the area.
Detailed consultations were held with Dartmoor National Park and the Town Council before submission. The application received unanimous support at the planning Committee meeting and was praised for its sympathetic design within the heart of this historic town.
Construction is due to start in Summer 2010.
04. Client Testimonial
When we started, we weren’t even sure what it was we wanted and it wasn’t until about the ‘Mark VII’ version that we finally felt brave enough to give the go ahead. During this ‘design gestation’ we felt embarrassed at our lack of direction but our indecision was met with patience and guidance until the final layout was agreed…everything was handled with smooth professionalism including the planning process with Dartmoor National Park.
