Practice looks to ‘country house clause’ for Hampshire reservoir plans
AR Design Studio has worked up proposals for a water-lily inspired house that would float on a Hampshire reservoir.
The practice said it would seek approval for the scheme under the National Planning Policy Framework’s so-called “country house clause” – Paragraph 79 of the key planning rulebook, which allows new homes in countryside areas when they are of “exceptional quality”.
AR Design Studio said the 505sq m scheme, named Water Lily House, was earmarked for a disused agricultural reservoir near Alresford and that it would provide future residents with 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside as well as promote biodiversity.
