Evans McDowall Architects are happy to share that our proposals for a development of five high-quality bespoke houses in Glentham, Lincolnshire, have recently been submitted for planning.

Through careful observations of the context, the modern development integrates with the village surroundings. Inspired by the varied scale and form of the wider settlement area, our designs subtly incorporate the traditional architectural language of the village while adding contemporary scale and detail. Designs prioritise sustainable architecture practices such as fabric-first construction and passive environmental strategies, all aimed at achieving net-zero. Additionally, we have collaborated with experienced ecologists to develop proposals that will enhance the existing mature landscape, providing a Biodiversity Net Gain of 10%.

The development features individually designed two-storey properties set within spacious gardens, each with a detached single-storey garage. With a mix of 3 and 4-bedroom detached houses, our layout proposals ensure privacy for residents through ample separation between homes and thoughtful positioning to minimise overlooking.

Materially, the proposals relate to building types familiar to the village, with a mix of stone and brick complemented by slate and clay tile roofs. Key architectural details associated with a contextual material palette provide an authentic bespoke design.
