2007 - 2009
Pollard Thomas Edwards obtained planning permission for this scheme which redevelops the site of an existing hostel building in Watford. Our scheme creates a terrace of nine three-storey houses for affordable rent which terminates at either end in taller four-storey apartment blocks. One apartment block is dedicated to supported housing, and the other block contains 12 flats for shared ownership.
Timber cladding has been used to complement the wooded setting, and pitched roofs acknowledge the surrounding suburban vernacular.
Private and communal gardens run along the south side of the site, whilst vehicle access and parking lies to the north.
