Contract Type:Construction of New Bungalow

Architect:Vincent Dobson (Builders) / I-Design

Location:Ilkley

Commissioned by our sister company, Vincent Dobson (Builders) Ltd, work commenced October 2010. The property is situated in the Middleton Conservation Zone which has determined a sensitive approach to both the design and execution of the project. This has involved considerable consultation with Planners, Neighbours and the Client to ensure that the construction satisfies all criteria set upon the project.

Vincent Dobson (Builders) have a long standing relationship with the Ilkley community, the respect generated by over 40 years of building in Ilkley is evident by the manner in which the building is being constructed. Of coursed stone with a Westmorland slate roof, the bungalow echoes the arts and crafts style typical of some of the original properties built in Middleton early in the last century.
