Beech Architects developed a scheme for 7 dwellings for Xpansion Homes on a steeply sloping site in Nottingham. The site is occupied by a derelict bungalow which is to be demolished to make way for the new homes. 5 of the dwellings are accessed off a shared surface private drive. The steeply sloping nature of the site and heavily built up surroundings required a carefully considered and detailed solution. The site was initially refused permission by the local authority, however working with the client Beech Architects appealed to the planning inspectorate and won permission at appeal.
