WOOD IS GOOD FOR SPENCE
Spence Associates has released these images of plans for a new country house on a 'highly sensitive' woodland site outside Farnham, Surrey. The practice, which has recently had its Turner Contemporary project in Margate axed, has already won planning permission for the 325m 2 home, despite recommendations from Waverley Borough Council's planners to turn down the scheme.
Due to start on site later this year, the development will replace an existing house in an area of outstanding natural beauty and great landscape value. The scheme will boast a number of 'green' features, including a bio-mass boiler, and has been designed to limit energy consumption without the need for sophisticated technology.
