Arup wins approval for prefab country house


Arup Associates has won planning permission to replace a 1970s farmhouse in rural Hampshire with this 2,000m² prefabricated home.

The so-called ‘House with No Name’, the location of which has not been revealed, is one of the first schemes to be approved since the South Downs National Park was set up in April 2011.

Designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5, the project will be built using a timber SIPs system and will start on site in July.

Seth Stein Architects had previously drawn up proposals for the plot. The new scheme features a ‘closed courtyard’ housing guest accommodation and a swimming pool.

The main house, which will be clad in vertical timber slats, will sit within a tree belt. The primary spaces are organised around a central hall, creating a series of ‘external garden spaces linked to the living areas’.

Completion is due in January 2013.
