We are delighted that this scheme, designed by Director Ross Sharpe, was approved this week under the 'Paragraph 79' rules. These rules allow for houses to be built in open countryside only if they meet the standard of 'truly outstanding or innovative design' as well as significantly enhancing the immediate setting. To our knowledge, this is the first non-classical, traditional house to have received such a consent.
Nansledan, a Duchy of Cornwall development in Newquay, has been nominated for a 2020 Regional RIBA Award. The scheme, masterplanned by ADAM Architecture and featuring several houses designed by Yiangou Architects' Ross Sharpe, demonstrates the compatibility between large housing developments and high quality, contextually respectful architecture.
The practice has been awarded a 'Houzz Design' award from the social network, our fourth in as many years. Visit our Contact page for a link to our profile.
We are proud to continue our association with Country & Town House Magazine, and to appear in Great British Brands for a third year. The 2020 guide describes itself as 'The Optimism Issue' and showcases the positivity and innovation currently being found in British businesses.
