5 unbuilt UK homes to bring to life in 2022

From raw conversions to fantasy plots with planning

January is all about fresh starts and new beginnings, making it the ideal time to plan a self-build project.

Building your own home is a fraught, complex process, but the end reward is worth it: you get a completely bespoke and tailored design, under the market price.

Here we’ve found five exciting sites in the UK awaiting transformation in 2022, including a pair of workshops in Brighton’s boho Kemp Town, a former Georgian chapel in Bath, and an architect’s bold design for a rural Hertfordshire site. Could you fulfil their potential?

Studio Weave unveiled its planning scheme to turn a two-bedroom Greenwich Park townhouse into a modernist retreat with a glass-roofed sunroom last year.  See more on the project.

Mines Park by 6a Architects

Mines Park is a plot of 100 acres with planning permission to build a modern country mansion designed by Tom Emerson of 6A Architects. The 12,000 sq ft structure reinterprets traditional 18th-century timber-framed English country houses and would be built with an exposed oak structure and hempcrete across four levels. We featured in among our summer edits of 2020 projects on the drawing board and it’s still seeking a buyer.
