Hertsmere Borough Council
Our Design Team was appointed to deliver concept designs leading to an outline planning approval application for the development of this site situated on the Elstree Way Corridor in Borehamwood. The design would be heavily influenced by the Council’s Elstree Way Corridor Area Local Plan & Design Guides as well as the context of the immediate surrounding area.
We produced concept massing models for early discussions with planners leading to design proposals that achieved planning permission for 97 apartments, consisting of predominantly 1 & 2 bedroom apartments to meet local demand and 1 x 3 bed apartment, all housed within 2 new apartment blocks of 7 & 8 storeys in height, for a mix of affordable and market rent. Energy efficiency considerations were an important factor in design development & specific sustainable design features have been incorporated to align with local social, environmental and economic objectives.
