Planning Permission in Sheen for Green Contemporary House

Friday, August 11, 2023

Dyer Grimes Architecture are thrilled to announce planning approval by Richmond Local Planning Authority for the demolition of a 1930’s house, which had been crudely and unsympathetically extended over time, to make way for a new highly energy efficient contemporary five bedroom home in East Sheen, Richmond.

Planning approved for green contemporary house bordering Metropolitan Open Lands (MOL) and Sheen Common.

Planning permission in Sheen for green contemporary house

We inherited this scheme from another Architect and an earlier design of the house had been refused planning by the local authority in 2021.

The site is not in a designated conservation area but borders East Sheen Common directly to the south which is designated as Metropolitan Open Land (MOL). This involved some careful design in terms of siting, massing and materiality where the new house is of a similar footprint to the existing property. The house is orientated east-west, maximising its views of the garden and Sheen Common beyond.

The new house promotes a plethora of green technology – Ground and air source heat pumps, Photovoltaic solar panels in addition to ecological enhancements such as sedum roofs and wildlife housing.

This is an exciting new build project, with a rich and vibrant material palette. We look forward to delivering this home towards the end of 2024.
