Although located between the busy seaside towns of Portstewart and Portrush, the design of this particular replacement dwelling still had to adhere to the principles of the planning service rural design guide, since the site in fact remains on green belt land. Without doubt, this site offered some of the best coastal views of all the projects ADMS have undertaken, and this has influenced the design very heavily. The site, although idyllic in terms of its location, still had its challenges – such as access and parking, designing in a garden area that would avail of the sun path, and layout of the plan so as to make the utmost of the views available. The resulting design was approved by our client on the first attempt, which was not something that even they expected to happen! It has since been fully approved by planning, but has not yet commenced on site. Updated images of the finished result will be added should this happen.
