M3 wins planning for one-off house with no design changes demanded - images

  • Comment
Clerkenwell-based M3 Architects has won planning permission for this one-off house in Sanderstead, Surrey.

The practice received the green light without the planners demanding any design changes to its original proposals.

The £500,000 house, for architectural photographer Raf Makda, will feature a fully glazed circulation space and a large swimming pool and gym.

The 350m 2home will also include a series of energy-saving measures, such as a heat exchange and photovoltaic cells on the roof.

M3 partner Ken Hutt claimed that the ease with which the scheme got the go-ahead was a 'vindication' of the practice's 'robust approach to the planning process'.

'It's a case of getting it right first time', Hutt said. 'With more and more borough planning departments trying to hit quotas, often refusing applications within the eight weeks to hit targets, it is encouraging to get a positive result with such a modern design.

'We spent a lot of time up-front to make sure that our ideas would not be compromised,' Hutt added.
