Clevedon Hall Residential Development

Creative approach to designing in a historic setting

This residential development creates bespoke private dwellings in a parkland setting within the grounds of Grade II listed Clevedon Hall. The scheme comprises 48 new detached and semi-detached houses, eight self-contained hotel suites located in the old Walled Garden and comprehensive landscaping.

“ The design was based on houses in the landscape using banked land forms to make the buildings feel lower and preserve views to the tree-lined boundary ”
Alex Bell - Director

Informed by consultation with Historic England and the local planning authority, the proposal creates low density clusters of houses around the edges of a new park. Split-level properties face directly onto the landscape with the site topography wrapping around the ground floors. High quality paved courtyards conceal parking leaving the houses and parkland set against a backdrop of mature trees.

The North Field land had never been developed, so the justification for building here was a key point of contention. The design was based on houses in the landscape using banked land forms to make the buildings feel lower and preserve views to the tree-lined boundary. This created a much lower density that a traditional housing scheme but the focus here was quality and place-making for the enjoyment of residents.

In South Field, pairs of steeply gabled houses face into a central shared area with parking and play space. Secluded and private, the same high-quality surfaces and natural earth tones are used throughout.

The historic Walled Garden houses eight two-storey hotel units referencing traditional Victorian glasshouses. These will be available as short term lets, with parking and a secluded outlook.

The Clevedon Hall project received planning and listed building consent and the first phase is being built by a developer.
