A previous planning application for a full two storey side extension was withdrawn based on comments received from the planning officer relating to the potential for over shadowing the neighbours garden.
A concept design was prepared looking at a contemporary design that could fit within the shadow created by the existing cottage in response to the planning officers feedback.
A shadow analysis was carried out to research the extent of shade created by the existing dwelling over the neighbours garden. The video demonstrates how a building can be designed within complex site constraints. The 'shadow' extension is finished in timber cladding (with shadow gaps) and inspired by the mature trees that form the backdrop within this area of the site.
