Isle of Wight green light for Fletcher Crane


[FIRST LOOK] Up-and-coming practice Fletcher Crane Architects has landed planning for this 400m2house in Ryde, on the Isle of Wight

The three-storey scheme overlooking the Solent was won in an invited contest ahead of John Pardey Architects, 3DReid, Depth and Roz Barr Architects.

The house will replace a dilapidated cottage set within a stone-walled garden and within the curtilage of a listed building.

According to the practice the house will be finished in render and feature ‘low iron, U-profile glass’, used to create ‘gallery-type day-lit internal spaces while protecting neighbours privacy’.

As well as ‘generous roof terraces with sea views’, the main living spaces on the upper floors have access to terraces.

The scheme is due to start on site in early 2011.

Earlier this year the Teddington-based practice won the high-profile 36 The Calls contest in Leeds ahead of almost a 100 entrants.

  • Uninspired, but with the Isle of Wight planners, it's not what you know, it's who you know...

  • Difficult to judge without some plans to illustrate what's where - but note the section shows four stories not teh three suggested.
