Newham Park

Laurence Associates proudly presents a meticulously planned and environmentally conscious project that has secured planning permission for an expansive contemporary dwelling boasting superior thermal efficiency. Commencing with Class Q planning permission to replace the existing barn, our journey progressed to obtaining full approval for a two-story dwelling.

Nestled at the bottom of the valley in open countryside just south of Lostwithiel, and adjacent to the river Fowey, our design pays homage to the original agricultural barn’s positioning and footprint. The ground floor features a stone-clad double garage, a double-height entrance hall with a striking main staircase and bridge link. The layout encompasses an open plan dining and kitchen space, living and games rooms, a link gallery incorporating window seats and library, a study, and bedrooms, all with stunning views out to the natural landscape and valley below.

Ascending to the first floor/mezzanine, discover a linear layout of spaces including bedrooms each with a study and ensuite bathroom, a guest bedroom/study, a family bathroom, and a separate study and yoga studio. Throughout, the proposed materials harmoniously integrate with the natural surroundings, featuring natural Cornish stone, vertical weathered silvered cedar, dark grey curved anthracite zinc to the rooves of the eye dormers that sit within a wild meadow that covers the main mono pitched roof.

This architectural endeavour exemplifies Laurence Associates’ sensitive and skilful approach to large scale contemporary residential design, commitment to innovative design, sustainable practices, and buildings that seamlessly integrate as part of the landscape.
