Hudson Architects has lost a planning appeal for this country house - the first Modernist scheme to be submitted under the terms of the PPS7 clause. Elvendon House in Goring-on-Thames, south Oxfordshire, would have been almost entirely buried under a sloping valley side and was praised by CABE for being 'well considered in functional and topographical form'. However, the planning inspector rejected the scheme, claiming the house did not 'significantly enhance' its immediate setting and would harm the character of the surrounding area of outstanding natural beauty.
