We have just secured planning permission for this ultra contemporary 4 bed detached house in Roath, Cardiff. Careful consultation with the planners resulted in their strong support for this modern design as a 21st century addition to the Roath Mill Gardens conservation area. Set next to Roath Brook this house has a L-shaped plan with stone fin walls reflecting the locality contrasting with modern slate grey cladding panels. The house is highly sustainable using Modern Methods of Construction. Super-insulated and airtight, with a passive solar design it should require minimal heating.
