Bishops Lodge gains planning approval Friday 14 December

We are delighted to announce that our redevelopment of Woodthorpe Lodge in Sandal, Wakefield has been granted planning permission.

This sensitive project clears the original Victorian mansion, a non-designated heritage asset, of insensitive later additions and restores it’s interior to form three new dwellings. Formally simple, contemporary extensions defer to the existing building, using the proportions of existing bay windows to define elements of their form.

Three new-build dwellings negotiate the site’s complex topography and existing trees to create a new settlement within the grounds of the original house. Each house was designed individually, responding to a specific siting within the grounds.

The unique setting of each renovation or new-build dwelling addresses a different area of mature woodland, each with its own character.
