From the outset and throughout the design process, the design team sought engagement with the Local Authority and Design Review Panel (DRP). Scheme iterations were presented on three occasions from early concept through the to final design.
The proposals now result in an extremely clear and strong conceptual approach, resulting in contemporary, playful, exciting, sculptural building; a fractured/broken wall in the landscape that is sensitive to its immediate surroundings and wider setting. It is considered that the proposals respond extremely well to the site contours, solar orientation and prevailing wind, as well as the wider visual impact considerations. The Panel now considers that the proposals have demonstrated that they result in proposals that do link to, and form part of, an integrated landscape and ecological proposal, resulting in an enhancement on the existing situation. The Panel also considers that the proposals result in an enhancement to long range views towards the site.
