Brill wins planning appeal for 'radical' extension
Dan Brill Architects has won a planning appeal against Winchester City Council for this ‘radical’ single-storey house extension
A 17m-long rear addition will attach and run through the existing two-storey home which will be gutted and converted into a single double-height volume.
A spokesman for the practice said: ‘Exploiting a long suburban site, the unusual design solution is driven by an ambitions accommodation schedule and the need to minimise visual impact on surrounding properties.’
The plans were originally turned down in April following objections from a nieghbour, who according to Brill, ‘felt entitled to overlook adjacent properties’.
Work is expected to start on site early next year (2011).
