Lewis Capaldi's Eaglesham farmhouse extension is a hit with planners

Renfrewshire Council has handed the all-clear to singer Lewis Capaldi to proceed with an expansion of his Eaglesham home.

Works to be undertaken by Ewan Cameron Architects include the erection of two new extensions alongside internal modifications to the main farmhouse.

These centre on an open-plan entertaining space and feature fireplace opening onto a landscaped terrace, achieved by extending out over the footprint of an old conservatory.

A former stable block and garage will also be converted into a private gym and shower facilities, integrated within the main body of the home by a new access corridor opening onto an interior courtyard.

A reconfigured interior will also permit the creation of a cinema and media room.

So we're just not respecting people's privacy anymore? Lets all just have a peek inside the singing man's new home?

#1 - I'm not sure privacy counts when it's just a render. Unless of course they choose to add some realism to the images and model Mr Capaldi's dirty tartan boxers lying on the floor

This is not Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent

Erm, I though this was a website basically dedicated to looking at folks houses? UR could always put a black rectangle redaction over every drawing and render but it would probably just end up with folk saying "That's not how they used to design black rectangles in my day..."

Who the hell is Lewis Capaldi? And should anyone care who they are when their plans are subject to the same public upload as any other non MOD application?

#5, if it comes up in a pub quiz you should know... Lewis Capaldi is a very famous Scot. A former professional footballer turned celebrity dessert chef. He's well known in and around the Dundee area for his support of the berry industry but is from the west of Scotland where he owns his flagship restaurant.

He's an advocate of all things homeopathic and was the first transman in Scotland to be awarded the Margo Steinman Award for his work in the promotion of architectural education for children in Morningside.

He's a child of privilege though, having inherited three of the seven most profitable ice cream van routes in North Airdrie.

And let us not forget his unpaid voluntary work in the promotion of all things 'tonic wine' related.
I assume the fitness suite/sauna and squash court will follow in the phase 2 design!!
