A 1940’s bungalow set within the heart of the National Peak District.


A 1940’s bungalow set within the heart of the National Peak District. The scheme includes the demolition of the existing ‘out of character’ bungalow and construction of a partially sunken split-level four bedroom substantial statement contemporary property inclusive of a cinema room and entrance gallery to the open plan living area below. The property is situated in such a position it will enjoy extensive 365 degree views of the Peak District.

Ashford-in-the-Water, Derbyshire




Alice intuitively understands the needs of the client and works hard to deliver these in the context of site constraints. This project was in a sensitive location at the heart of the Peak District National Park. She delivered a contemporary design for a replacement dwelling that took its cues from the local vernacular so that it harmonised with the landscape of the area. We obtained planning permission for a significantly larger dwelling on the site via delegated powers and with no third party objections – a feat almost unheard of in this part of the world!
