L+WA are delighted that Planning Permission has been granted for this replacement dwelling on a riverside site near Costessey, Norwich.

Replacement contemporary dwellings on rural sites continue to be a significant aspect of our work.

L+WA has secured these two Planning Permissions over the past two days

A replacement dwelling at Wicklewood, near Wymondham. The proposed 2-storey house continues our exploration of rural and agricultural forms for new houses in the Norfolk countryside. The building will largely be faced with black profiled cladding. The existing bungalow will mostly be retained, re-clad and converted into the garage block.

A glass garden room extension at a Grade II Listed farmhouse near Hingham. The addition will help to connect the house and remodelled living area to the terrific and unique setting. Contemporary additions to old buildings continue to be a key aspect of L+WA’s work.
