Historically, we lived in village communities formed through intimate relationships and common interests in a built environment where everyone knew and supported one another. Our design philosophy focuses on re-instating these important support mechanisms within our communities; representing the fulfilment of the natural desire to help positively shape the way we live and the communities we serve, improving our quality of life in a way which is compatible with the interests of future generations.
Anna Kiho is our Head of Living & Communities.
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.
HLM were appointed as Lead Design Consultant to carry out the full detailed design and construction of this prestigious high-end residential project. As part of the design process, HLM proposed an alternative solution which added substantial development value to the previously consented scheme, achieving additional bedrooms at every level, as part of a revised core strategy and space planning approach. The scheme provides approximately 60 flats, designed and specified to the highest standards in line with the expectations of the London Prime Residential Market.
