Robert Adam unveils 'traditional' village expansion

ADAM Architecture has completed a 55-house development in the village of Norton St Philip, Somerset

The Winchester and London-based practice has completed the first phase of a residential scheme on the southern boundary of the ‘historic’ village of Norton St Philip for developers Lochailort Investments and Bloor Homes.

Built on site of derelict chicken processing factory, the scheme contains a combination of two, three, four and five bedroom homes, as well as a shop, doctors’ surgery and three office units.

The houses are constructed from natural stone and no two homes are the same.

The second phase of the development, which is currently under construction, consists of seven houses and will be followed be 15 further homes in phase three. The whole scheme is expected to be completed by spring 2014.

Architect’s view

Robert Adam, director, ADAM Architecture

By creating variety in the buildings and with the use of high quality local materials we have been able to mix simple and distinctive designs to create a place that not only works within the tradition of the village but has its own individual character.
