New country house in Norfolk under NPPF Para 55

A new Country House, with 9-bedrooms set in open countryside on a working farm, was granted planning permission under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) paragraph 55 planning legislation that permits the building of new country houses considered to be of ‘exceptional quality or innovative design’. The house is set over four floors including a basement. A curved orangery links the main house to a conservatory pavilion, all of which is orientated towards magnificent views to the south west. The appearance of the building, constructed in stone and render, is both contemporary and progressive, steeped in, and a continuation of, the English country house tradition and the specific vernacular architecture of Norfolk. The client and design team worked with specialists to develop a strategy for the innovative use of hydrogen fuel cell technology for the provision of power to the house.
