What Makes Great Outbuilding Design?
Unfortunately, as with most aspects of the architectural industry, there is an equal number of examples of great outbuilding design and poor outbuilding design.
Part of the issue here is that whilst the adoption of permitted development rights allows for quick and easy outbuilding construction it also takes away the local authority’s opportunity to review the outbuilding design and ensure that the project is of a quality that is suitable to be approved.
It is vital that for great outbuilding design that a holistic view is taken on the project, whilst it may look like a ‘box at the bottom of the garden’ it absolutely isn’t, it is a detached extension of the home and therefore we need to look at the outbuilding design from an internal and external point of view. Ensuring that the outbuilding ‘connects’ to the home and to the garden is key to great outbuilding design.
