Planning permission has been granted for our proposal to convert a building of 'historical significance' into residential apartments. The building had been struggling to retain a practical use in its existing capacity, and was at risk of becoming neglected. This permission will offer the building a new lease of life and the much-needed refurbishment it requires.
Our Principal Architect, David Challinor, was shortlisted in the 'Best Architect for a self-build project' category at the 2018 Build It awards for his work on 'Atrium', a stylish contemporary new-build in Orpington, Kent. If you are planning a contemporary new-build project in South-East London or Kent, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Driven by a desire to create something new, our practice prides itself on developing attractive, sustainable and environmentally-considered schemes, which optimise the site area and uplift the locality. To achieve this, we use the latest BIM software to generate a 3D computer model of the site, and then work through the most appropriate and creative solution for the proposal. As each site and client is unique, our project portfolio demonstrates originality and versatility.
We collaborate with energy, horticultural and ecology consultants, and drainage engineers, to provide a considered and sensitive approach to development. As well as being mindful of the environment, with each project, we take into consideration the health, well-being and happiness of the community. Our proposals are thoughtfully guided by the user experience, with the aim of creating schemes that bring delight and enjoyment to occupants.
Our aim is always to achieve planning permission at first submission and we have an excellent track record in gaining consent for our proposals. For all of the projects we've undertaken at green belt and AONB (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) sites, we've achieved planning consent at first attempt. We have also recently obtained permission for a nine-dwelling development at a client's site in Guildford at first submission, without being referred to committee. This was achieved by presenting a considered and sensitive site proposal, that took into account masterplanning, urban design, landscape design and architecture.
