The clients had recently bought this listed townhouse in Maldon, Essex. They wanted to create improve links between the house and the extensive gardens.

The client had spoken with the planning department and had been discouraged by the process.

Our brief was to help them understand the potential, and then guide them through the process. This included negotiating planning permission that included Listed Building Consent.


Investigation and discussion.  Over several meetings we investigated how the family used the existing house, what new space they needed, and how they would use the new space created. We produced 3d visualisations of several options so that the client could understand how the proposals looked from inside and outside. Visualisations of the preferred option helped to negotiate the planning permission.

Design.  The clients agreed to remove some earlier extensions. This re-established the original form of the house. We proposed simple internal alterations that opened up the inside of the house and improved flow though these spaces. This also achieved the client’s objective of linking the house to the garden.

Planning. As we had consulted thoroughly with the planning department the proposals sailed through planning to obtain Listed Building Consent first time.
