The site is located in a beautiful setting of Northumberland, UK. The proposal comprises of a two- phase development plan for a mixture of luxury houses. The architectural character of the proposed houses has been derived from the need for a contemporary development to blend into the historic landscape of that zone. The scheme is aimed to appeal to families that like luxury amidst a generous landscape in a private setting. The existing building is converted into separate dwellings and the challenge was to convert a substantial architectural mass into sub-divided units with minimum intervention, both on the exterior and interior.
