Lilly Lewarne Practice Chartered Architects Truro are delighted to announce the successful outcome of an appeal to the Secretary of State for Cornwall Council’s refusal of a householder planning application for the extension and alterations to an existing dwelling at Higher Rosevine on the Roseland Peninsular, Cornwall.
We wish our client every success in their future development of their project.
Progress at Fairglen is good with completion of the purchases for Plots 1, 2 and 3, and the completion of Plot 5 expected in the next couple of weeks. With further serious enquiries received for the remaining Northern row of plots, which are also nearing completion, this phased development has now moved on to the southern row of plots after securing good sales and receiving a good level of further enquiries.
These four new quality houses were designed by Lilly Lewarne for a wooded site on the outskirts of Truro, nestled between two listed buildings. The design of each individual dwelling has responded to and worked with the existing topography of the site, 3 of the houses will be of a split level in nature so as to reflect the level changes locally to them. All 4 houses are unique in design however the site has been considered as a whole with the same palette of natural materials used throughout. The largest house design has influences taken from the existing dwellings opposite, with an agricultural / courtyard experience, reflecting the character of its setting.
The overall aim was to provide quality traditional homes within walking distance of Truro City Centre combining fine detailing with home comforts.
Lilly Lewarne Practice, Truro, are excited to be involved with Dales Central Motor’s new all-purpose and up to date Vauxhall showroom and associated workshops in Scorrier, Cornwall. Work commenced on site earlier this month following the initial turf cutting ceremony by company directors Carolyn Peters and Dominic Cadge.
The new purpose built Vauxhall dealership and workshops will be situated on the opposite side of the A30 to Dales’ established SEAT, Renault and Dacia showrooms and will compliment Dales’ established presence in Cornwall.
Lilly Lewarne will continue following this project through to completion as Dales Central Motors’ Architect and Lead Designer.
Neil Dolley from Lilly Lewarne recently featured in an article in Premier Construction Magazine (click here for article) discussing our fantastic new project; 20 new Passivhaus Eco homes for Phase 2 of Fairglen in Hayle for Percy Williams & Sons Ltd
Construction on Phase 2 commenced in May 2016 with each terraced/semi-detached unit being constructed to meet full Passivhaus standards. Passivhaus was originally a German concept on Eco house construction that ultimately the aim is to achieve over 80% lower heating bills. Plots 1 and 2 are now nearing completion, for more information regarding the scheme and more in depth look visit their website Fairglen.
Lilly Lewarne also worked very closely with Ben Quinn at Cube Vision Studio to develop accurate computer generated depictions of the homes as featured here. The images ended up being so realistic they fooled many into thinking the scheme had already finished!
