Weobley Castle

New-build agricultural workers dwelling within the grounds of a working farm.

Multiple layers of complex planning procedure and legal agreements were required to secure the approval. The building needed to be modest in size and capture the amazing views over the estuary. A generous double height entrance forms with dramatic window creates a dramatic space that leads into an open kitchen/dining room, separate snug with the utilitarian functions of the house tucked away to the rear. The three upstairs bedrooms and bathroom with vaulted ceilings each capture views of the landscape beyond.
