We are careful to consider the context of development, the needs of our client and wider user groups, and the potential impact on global climate change. Taking this holistic approach, we are able to deliver thoughtful solutions to complex problems using natural systems, while at the same time seeking to delight the people who experience these places through the considered use of form, materiality and planting that reflects the culture, history and ecology of a location.
HLM were invited by Barratt London to assist in their bid to secure the site opportunity, which already had the benefit of an existing planning consent for the previous landowner. Our ‘due diligence’ evaluation of the consented scheme demonstrated the potential to materially improve the spatial planning efficiency of the scheme. Subsequently, we developed a revised scheme which creates substantial additional value.
