Cassion Castle Architects has won planning permission for a trio of private homes near Cambridge
South Cambridgeshire District Council has approved the London-based practice’s designs for the three buildings in Stapleford, named the Hall, the Courtyard and the Halfway House respectively.
The Hall is a 400m² home inspired by medieval building types and designed around a large double-height living space, while the 300m² Halfway House is designed in an L-shape, forming a partial courtyard around a retained sycamore tree.
The third house, the Courtyard, is the smallest of the three at 180m² and is a single-storey home arranged around its own internal private courtyard.
The architecture is inspired by the landscape of the fens, and is deliberately pared-back. The houses will be finished in a muted palette of concrete, white brick and porcelain tile.
Long, flat roofs with deep overhangs are punctuated by masonry piers which link the three buildings together.
Work is planned to start on site in 2019.
