Creek Cabin - Reydon, Suffolk, UK
Innovative replacement dwelling in a sensitive planning context for a private client.
c. £1million construction budget / with Jon Broome Architects.
The site sits within an internationally-recognised, RAMSAR-designated wetland and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Suffolk Broads, which has required a flood-resilient approach to construction, as well as extensive pre-application consultation with the local authority and statutory consultees in order to provide the necessary reassurance of design quality in a sensitive location.
The project is technically complex - with the client requiring a range of innovative features including a floating green roof, pneumatic lift and a range of off-grid energy systems. The project has also involved the discharge of extensive pre-commencement planning conditions and is due to start on site in Spring 2018.
