wilde and wilde planning permission for norfolk village hall
Wilde & Wilde gained Planning permission for an extension and remodel to Long Stratton Village Hall in Norfolk. Our design will give the rear of the Village Hall a pleasant, functional and aesthetic make-over.

An existing late 20th Century extension with a flat roof currently detracts from the pitched brick and flint elevations of the original 1905 building and the Architects wanted to re-work this area and create a new public entrance using one of the Hall's rear windows. The modern block is partially retained, re-ordered internally, and then detailed to match the newer fabric.

Our design adds a function room, upgrades ancillary spaces and accentuates the many historic elements.
wilde and wilde conservation area planning consent for compact dining experience
Planning permission has been secured for a contemporary kitchen and dining room extension to a family home in one of Norwich's leafy conservation areas. The design is compact and is based upon a suite of natural materials with an asymmetric roof form. A glazed triangle to the rear, with folding doors and deck extend the living space out into the garden.

It was imperative to keep the external building envelope rational as we were designing for a self-build client. The Architects were able to add a dramatic curved wall leading into the new kitchen space, with a feature roof-light over the new family dining area.

We recently gained full Planning Permission for an attractive new dining space and general remodel of a large family home in mid Norfolk. The design takes advantage of leafy views over a mature garden and further out to a water-side landscape of reeds and willow trees.

Large areas of glazing will permit inside-outside living and this principle is extended to the first floor main bedroom suite where the corner of the building will be opened up and completed with a minimal glass balustrade.

Wilde & Wilde were commissioned by the owner of a historic Water Mill in Norfolk to design a kitchen extension to the rear of the Mill House. Elements of the site date back to the Domesday Book, and the Mill and Mill House are Grade II Listed.

We investigated several design concepts, avoiding the obvious lean-to or cat-slide roof option, in favour of a gable design which offers the best natural lighting conditions internally and retains important views of the adjacent garden.

After gaining Planning and Listed Building Consent, we completed the detailed drawing package and specification and the project is nearing completion.

The Architects were asked to work with robust materials that would be long lasting, and suited to the north-facing elevation of the Watermill. Our clients chose a standing seam zinc roof and aluminium windows, which would be in contrast to the main building.

For such a small project, completed on a constrained site, the spatial sequence through to the dining room is surprising (as can be seen from the sketch section above) and the way in which light now enters a formerly dark series of spaces is delightful. Constructed by Grocott and Murfit builders of North Norfolk.

We were commissioned to extend a former Class Q development near Woodbridge in Suffolk. Class Q was brought in by government in 2014 as a type of permitted development aimed at reducing pressure on housing in rural areas. This type of planning permission had previously allowed the change of use from an agricultural storage building to residential use.

We started with a site visit and survey, absorbing the atmosphere and location as we measured the original building. Immediately we were impressed by the woodland backdrop and the potential for views through tree-tops over adjacent fields, even though the design would be constrained to one storey.

We compiled a detailed brief from our clients and returned to our studio to begin concept work. Our clients were excellent in their approach and Wilde and Wilde worked alongside a Planning Consultant to acheive planning consent.

A major part of our commission was to create a landscape design that fluidly moves from an organic rural theme to more defined lines around the extended home. This was an important factor in the planning permission process.

We have proposed a mix of indigenous planting with natural materials, and have created a zoned garden with varying aesthetic treatments, textures and fragrances from the planting.

The extension includes an extensive green roof and roof deck access with planting. This element will provide expansive views out from the tree-lined site.
Landscape plan of Robins Green
The building plan is created around twin rectangular forms, shifted along their contact line. The outer rectangle houses a garage/ workshop. The doors to the garage have been designed to appear seamless with the rest of the cladding. There is a perforated section of wall that part-conceals a staircase up to the roof deck.

The rest of the extension will be finished in charred timber and aluminium-framed windows, with a bespoke front door in bird's egg blue.
