BPTW is working as architect and planning consultant across eight sites, designing a range of affordable homes to help London Borough of Hounslow to achieve its goal of delivering an additional 5,000 new and affordable homes by 2022.
|Client||London Borough of Hounslow|
|Number of Homes||Circa 500|
|Planning Approved||4 to date|
Organised into two tranches, the topography, condition, and ownership of each site varies considerably, including joint venture opportunities with private developers, Grade II listed buildings for renovation, infill sites and estate regeneration.
To ensure the Council reaches its goal of reducing its carbon emissions to net zero by 2030, all schemes have been designed with achieve a high level of sustainability in collaboration with specialist energy consultancies. Homes designed on each site utilise simple, but effective construction techniques to minimise heat loss and maximise efficiency, as well as low carbon technologies including air source heat pumps, increased levels of insulation and photovoltaic panels.
To date, BPTW has secured planning permission for four sites totalling 154 homes:
- Orchard Road – a scheme of 5 affordable homes using a design which aims to exceed the London Energy Transformation Initiative.
- The Everglades – an infill development which will provide 33 homes across three residential buildings, all of which sit within an existing estate.
- Clements Court – a project which will create 74 high quality homes as well as a large amenity space in the centre of the estate for new and existing residents.
- Rose Gardens – a scheme of 42 homes created through the demolition of two apartment blocks and a series of garages on an existing estate.
BPTW is working on a number of other schemes with Hounslow including Hanworth Park House, a development that will restore a Grade II Listed house into a community use and bring forward over 280 new homes.
