Baca gets planning for lottery winner’s house
Modern country home sails through committee
Baca Architects has received planning permission for a 21st century English country house, designed for a couple that won £45 million in the lottery.
Nottingham’s planning committee voted 12 to one in favour of the design, which includes four hubs set in a circular shape around a central pool and courtyard.
Each section is connected by a half-storey of steps to create a free-flowing plan, reminiscent of the linear sequence of formal and private rooms set in the wings of 18th century houses.
As well as a snooker room, cinema, staff quarters and swimming pool, it includes a rain-water waterfall with a ten-space car garage behind it.
