‘Buildings can, and often do, enhance the landscape within which they are set’ explains Richard. ‘Sometimes a wonderful landscape can be made even more special by an appropriate architecture. Nothing could be truer than with the Ewen Tree house project, in rural Gloucestershire.’

Would you believe this isn’t a real home? The images are incredibly convincing CGI images. Showing how the proposed tree house will look once built.

Speaking of the unique property Richards explains ‘We’ve lifted the house up to blur the relationship of the house with the ground. This provides the opportunity for some unique spaces and architectural opportunities.’

Ewen Tree House is a fine Paragraph 55 enabled project. Richard is the only architect in the UK to have a 100 per cent record of Para 55 approval builds. His own Para 55 home featured on Grand Designs.

What is a Para 55 home?

‘Paragraph 55’ or ‘Para 55’ relates to the special circumstance set out in paragraph 55 of the National Policy Planning Framework – that allows new homes to be built in the countryside.

Para 55 states planning consent may be granted if the proposal represents ‘exceptional quality or innovative design.’ New planned houses should ‘significantly enhance the immediate setting’. Offering ‘sensitivity to the defining characteristics of the local area’
