Sub-Terranean House, Torbay

The previous planning difficulties associated with this site (conservation area, within the curtilage of a listed building and a previous appeal dismissed) would turn most people away from this site. An underground dwelling was the solution and a planning permission was obtained. A central light well ensures that all the habitable areas receive natural light.
