Grimsby-based ID Architecture has submitted plans for this Cor-ten-clad ‘country house clause’ home in rural Lincolnshire
The practice is banking on Paragraph 55 of the National Planning Policy Framework – an exemption allowing new-build homes in the open countryside under ‘special circumstances’ – to win approval for the 340m² scheme in Hatcliffe.
Sitting within the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the home will be partially underground and designed to ‘emulate a traditional Lincolnshire barn’.
The building features a concrete plinth ‘punctured by large expanses of glass’ topped by a Cor-ten barn-like structure housing the bedrooms with views towards a nearby barrow – a Bronze Age Scheduled Ancient Monument.
The application, which is recommended for approval, is expected to be considered by North East Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee next month.
