1 The Old Dairy , Fonthill Bishop , SALISBURY , SP3 5SH

The development of four dwellings was on a site in a village within the Wylye Valley and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with each property orientated to maximise the far reaching views over Salisbury Plain. Even though the site was outside the village Settlement Boundary planning consent was obtained to demolish the old farm buildings and create a public courtyard space based upon a traditional farmstead with contemporary style barns. The design incorporated oak frame detailing and larch cladding which will weather to compliment the handmade bricks, natural slate and landscape materials. The project received strong local support and praised for the design, approach and quality of construction. Through consultation with both the Parish Council and Wiltshire Council the scheme was designed and approved by being considered exception to the planning policy as it is outside the village boundary.
