Pixham, is a new family home lying at the foot of Box Hill, Dorking on the site of an existing dog training centre.
The site lies within a metropolitan green belt and the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as such falls under The National Planning Policy Framework paragraph 55 for remote houses set in the greenbelt.
The design of the over sailing green roof canopy serves to hide the proposed elevations from the elevated views on Box Hill, as well as reducing light pollution to these areas at night.
Materials have been careful chosen to be sensitive to the defining characteristics of the local area, including a flint ground floor and timber paneled panels to the 1st floor.
