A hybrid outline and detailed planning application for up to 67 dwellings in Royston was approved by North Herts District Council in May 2020. The site is within an existing industrial and residential area of the town and has a railway line along its southern boundary. Phase 1, consisting of 28 apartments in two similar blocks, received detailed approval on currently vacant brownfield land. The remaining 39 dwellings in Phases 2 and 3 received outline approval. The contemporary design of the apartments reflects the local context with buff and blue/grey brick and white render, accented by black metal balcony railings and dark grey fenestration. A LAP playspace is incorporated with 46 car spaces and storage for 34 cycle and 4 mobility scooters whilst maximising soft landscape. We await the client’s decision about implementing Phase 1 and hope to move on to produce working drawings for construction. JB Planning Associates was the planning consultant
Following difficulties due to the Covid-19 lockdown in 2020, construction work has now been completed at our Bovingdon site. The proposal involved the conversion of an existing barn into three dwellings as Class Q permitted development. Our planning application to enhance the design of the building, parking, hardstanding and gardens was approved by Dacorum Borough Council. The project incorporates Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) for speed of construction. Vertical standing seam zinc cladding is used with contrasting horizontal detailing on the gable ends to reflect the agricultural context of the existing farm buildings. Boast Architects have been involved in all stages of the project including concept design, planning and Building Regulations applications, tender process and contract administration.
Boast Architects has submitted a detailed planning application in Radlett for the demolition of a 5 bedroom dwelling and garage and the construction of a new 6 bedroom house with double garage, guest suite and garden room. This large and prestigious site has significant level changes and is screened with large mature trees and hedges on all boundaries. The proposed house is orientated the same way as the existing dwelling but is of a grander scale which is more appropriate to the size of the plot. The elevations of the proposed house are symmetrical and articulated with clean lines and simple detailing. Materials will be of high quality - the principle one being natural stone - reflect the stature of the proposed house and the surrounding area. The application is progressing and we look forward to continuing our involvement through the working drawings and construction phases.
