Planning Approval granted for 4 new dwellings at Lawrence Drive, Poole.

We are delighted to have gained Planning Consent for these 4 new dwellings to replace an existing property at Lawrence Drive Poole. The site has been divided into two zones, with two 2.5 storey arts and crafts style properties set within the footprint of the existing house at the site entrance, and two subservient contemporary dwellings set at a lower level at the foot of the site. This concept was developed with a need to respond to the existing context, which is characterised by large arts and crafts dwellings set within generous verdant plots.
