This is a large historic house in central Exeter, Devon that requires updating and restoration to make a family home fit for the 21st Century. This house's heritage and character make a positive contribution to its setting. hmad|architects sensitive design approach addresses the Client's brief to retain and enhance the external character, whilst providing a new room layout that will offer more flexible living spaces.
hmad|architects were delighted to have secured Planning and Conservation Area Consents. Our design received really positive feedback from local residents during the planning application:
"I will be delighted to see integrity restored to this unusual historic building. It will enhance Salutary Mount greatly, and be an important and appropriate renovation for the conservation area. I also appreciate the efforts made towards sustainability."
"The plans submitted are very sympathetic to the renovation of a beautiful old house and will enhance the area. The proposed amendment to the garage by making it a flat sedum roof, is a sensitive improvement further reducing any loss of sunlight to our garden from the previous plans."
"I am writing in support of this planning application. The drawings show a sensitive restoration and extension of the house. This is both necessary and welcome."
hmad|architects and our Clients are excited to progress the project further into construction, which has now begun on site.
