Austin wins planning for country house

Austin Design Works' proposals for Bellbroughton, in Worcestershire

Practice approved for multi-generational home

Austin Design Works has won planning permission to replace a 1980s bungalow in a Worcestershire village with a 1,000sq m multi-generational country house.

Its Bellbroughton scheme, which has gained consent from both Bromsgrove and Redditch councils has an entrance hall with a glass lift, a swimming pool, gym and bar.

Set in 4.8ha, the building’s design features a sheltered courtyard entrance to provide a clear sense of welcome at the same time as minimising external clutter to protect views from surrounding footpaths, said ADW director Matt Austin.
