Project overview

The proposal involved the re-design of a house which had had a previous planning approval but for a design (by others) which could not be built due to affordability.  HNA were employed to re-design the proposals to meet the budget whilst still maintaining the essence of the original design and to achieve a planning approval within the Conservation Area.  Working with the client, the contractor, the planner and conservation officer HNA were able to retain a modern design for the house despite the constraints.  HNA also designed the hard landscaping and exterior layout, making full use of the existing brick perimeter walls, to help knit the new house into its surroundings.
