Samrai Associates have acquired approval for the demolition of a semi-detached house and planning permission for a four bedroom detached house. Located on the very edge of a Northamptonshire village, a key objective was to exploit the expansive views of the rolling countryside that face two aspects. The local authority insisted on a traditional style that maintained the rhythm of the existing street scene. In contrast, the open plan ground floor is very adaptable for modern living. The first floor has been proposed with four large bedrooms that can be easily reconfigured into five.
