Housing Development at Rural Worcestershire Farmstead  

AHC was asked to provide design parameters for new housing which would allow development to go ahead without causing harm to this sensitive site and its listed buildings.

Kensington Palace

 

Kensington Palace

At this highly sensitive site AHC was asked to provide a Heritage Impact Assessment of a large, international temporary Arts Exhibition. After an analysis of the evolution and significance of the Kensington Palace vicinity, including its gardens and wider landscape, we were able to advise on the suitability of the proposed location and assist so that the Exhibition could go ahead with no negative impacts upon the site.

Surrey location

 

Surrey location

AHC carried out an assessment of a very poor 1970s block of flats in the centre of a rural Surrey village which is designated as a Conservation Area. Following our advice the flats, which were detracting from the special character and appearance of the Conservation Area, were demolished. They have been replaced with an attractive and appropriate new-build scheme which we helped to secure for this historic village centre.

Sports hall

 

College sports hall

Commissioned by a prominent College in Cheltenham we advised on the acceptability and location of a proposed new sports hall within an important part of the Conservation Area. Our careful assessment has led to the successful granting of consents.

Leigh Court, Bristol

Gate lodges are notoriously difficult to extend. AHC advised one of the owners of this triumphal arch lodge at Leigh Court on the construction of a new conservatory/kitchen to accord with the Regency style of the building.

  Private Seventeenth-Century House Requiring Glazed Link to Outhouse, Gloucester

We were called in to work with the architects and to provide design advice at this seventeenth-century private farmhouse. The owners wished to build a glazed section, linking the farmhouse to an historic outhouse. This task raised philosophical questions about the proposal but we were able to develop a successful, partially below-ground, solution which enabled the owners to maximise the space in their historic building whilst protecting the individuality of the two buildings.

New Building in the Grounds of a Listed Nineteenth-Century Lodge in Kent

AHC was commisioned to provide conservation advice concerning the construction of a new dwelling in the grounds of a nineteenth-century, listed lodge.  The original design and function of the lodge made this a particularly sensitive site.  However, working alongside the owners, we were able to propose a solution which enabled development to go ahead without compromising the integrity of the existing building or its setting.
