Nottingham’s planning committee voted 12 to one in favour of the design. It was described by Councillor Wood as innovative, inspirational and iconic.
An affluent couple seeking a new home that is “luxurious, environmentally-friendly and playful” has commissioned the curvaceous house. The vision is an exuberant property that stretches the boundaries of design, structure, and environmental thinking. A 21st century country house and a hidden retreat, designed for entertaining, and set within a beautiful landscaped garden. It also achieves a combination often difficult to resolve: a home that is low in energy use but also high in aesthetic aspiration and quality.
