Hyde + Hyde wins planning for re-imagined Welsh farmhouse

  • Comment

Hyde + Hyde has landed planning permission for this home in the Pembrokeshire National Park based on a traditional Welsh farmhouse.

Lying on the Pembrokeshire hillside, the Castle High 368m² scheme will boast ‘panoramic views of the Atlantic Sea’.

The project will refurbish existing 1800s outbuildings and replace a 1960s house, to create a contemporary building, arranged around a central courtyard.

The house will be constructed from white fair-faced concrete, which the architect claims has been inspired by ‘the enduring nature of a smooth pebble found along the shoreline’.
