Fenland Flood Resilient House

Studio 11 has recently submitted a planning application for six flood resilient homes on the edge of the settlement of Crowland within the Lincolnshire Fens. The site itself is located within Flood Zone 3, assessed as having a high risk of flooding should the sea defences be breached.

The solution designed by Studio 11 was to design a two-storey home that had habitable rooms to the first floor only with garage storage and ancillary rooms on the ground floor, therefore ensuring that the occupants of the property will be safe at all times. This scheme demonstrates that it is possible to create safe homes within areas of perceived potential flood risk.
