Richfield House

New replacement house

01. The Brief

Our clients needed an architect in Totnes, Devon to provide them with a Full exterior and interior design service for their New replacement house

02. Project Detail

Our clients bought a secluded plot in the centre of Totnes. The plot had not planning permission, however an expired permission had set a precedent for development. After careful pre-application negotiations with the local authority, an application was lodged and permission received in 2012. The design was for a detached, four bedroom family house with integral garage and an open kitchen / diner.

A restrained, contemporary approach was proposed, sitting confidently amongst detached period houses. The predominantly white, rendered walls were brokenboth horizontally and vertically with textured slate cladding and cedar boarding. The pitched roof profile has a split arrangement, creating two separate planes of slate. The roof is perforated with rooflights and has solar PV to the south facing elevation.

04. Client Testimonial

In 2013 I built a new home for my family in Totnes. This was based on plans and design produced by Eilir Sheryn. He assisted me throughout the design, planning and build process and I would commend him to anyone with a building project in mind. I found his genuine interest and willingness to help in all aspects of the project to be especially helpful along with other members of the VES team all of whom who I found to be both professional and personable.
