Estate Housing

A considerable number of clients have appointed the practice to prepare housing layouts. In most cases, the sites are located within an existing settlement and whilst a client may have a specific brief in terms of the number and type of dwellings to be built guidance is often required ensure that the new homes pay proper respect to any noteworthy features on the site and merge seamlessly with their surroundings.

The practice has also gained a reputation for the effective use of land utilising its skills for maximising the amount of development that can be obtained on a site having regard to local planning authority policies and standards.

This development consisted of the first phase of a larger scheme of 105 properties. In contrast to much of the new town housing in the Laindon area this proposal set out to establish a different identity and architectural character. The frontage houses are three storey, with first floor living rooms, and integral under-parking for cars. Roofs are slate with gault type brickwork, well proportioned fenestration, traditional doors and metal railings to define small front gardens. Two storey detached cottage style houses leading to further phases of development beyond.
