Saddlers

Liss, Hampshire.

The application site forms part of a large rear domestic garden occupied by a two storey residential property named ‘Saddlers’ on a corner plot between Farnham Road and Church Street and lies within the West Liss Conservation Area. The surroundings in Church Street is characterised by some attractive period cottages and towards the end of the lane lies the 13th Century St Peter’s Church – a Grade II* Listed Building, of outstanding historic, architectural and archaeological interest in the National context.

The Project Brief was to create two properties in the rear domestic garden to ‘Saddlers’.

The architectural concept comprises of two detached 1.5 storey 3 bedroom cottage style properties set far back into the site adjacent to its southern boundary. The design of each cottage is similar with small tweaks to distinguish one from the other. The cottages’ elevations have been designed and materials specified to reflect the best architecture found in the locality. The use of traditional materials and detailing found in period cottages is to be used in the cottages’ construction to allow the cottages to blend in seamlessly and sympathetically with the immediate and local surroundings.
