RBA designed this new Georgian house near Cardiff for private clients to replace an old bungalow and some run-down outbuildings.

The house meets the needs of the clients and their young family, with 6 bedrooms, a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living area, playroom, study, snug, utility and boot room. The site will also house a double garage, and an annexe with gym, bathroom and changing rooms, and an outdoor pool. 

The design takes into account the surrounding countryside, which is a designated Special Landscape Area. Rendered walls with stone detailing and slate roof tiles will mean that the house is an attractive addition to the landscape. 

RBA worked with Prospero Planning and landscape architects throughout the planning process and Vale of Glamorgan Council gave planning permission for the project in November 2019.  

Work is now well underway on site. RBA are also overseeing the project on site as per the guidelines of the Stage 5 of the RIBA Plan of Work 2020. This involves monthly visits to site to liaise with contractors, engineers and the clients, and resolving any construction queries that arise.
