Mole has obtained planning permission for a new house in the central conservation area of Ely. Replacing a double garage in the grounds of the client's existing home, the house takes inspiration from the roof of the Nave at Ely Cathedral, with a steep pitch and metal covering. Similarly the materiality and detailing of the proposed building takes cues from the verticality and fluting of the cathedral façades, and the vertical stonework of the interior. The façade of the house employs serrated brickwork façade, with recessed windows behind reconstituted stone surrounds. The overall quality is intended to be a subtle variation of traditional brick domestic architecture, drawing explicitly on local buildings to produce a façade of exceptional quality.
