Cooke House

The Design Approach & Planning Permission

Figura secured increases of 20, 50 & 22% in the buildable areas of each phase of the project by sensitive design.

The local authority was persuaded through negotiation that the extension to the granary, the design of the new houses, the clusters of 2nd homes and the sensitive treatment of the river and floodplain merited the requested increase in density.

Extensive Landscape and Floodplain Impact Statements, as well as a complete design guide, were needed to support the applications.

Although this process was drawn out, the developer's patience was rewarded by the large increase in value of the project created by Figura's work.
