Land off Box End Road, Kempston, Bedfordshire
11 bespoke houses
Outline planning application
The scheme for 11 bespoke houses is set on the outskirts of Bedford, adjacent to a listed farmhouse. In order to limit the impact of the development on the setting of the listed building, a wide landscaped buffer was proposed to screen the development. Similarly, the plots orientation and buildings height where designed to address the proximity to the listed building. Collaboration with English Heritage has contributed to the delivery of a high quality and contemporary design that is sympathetic with this context.
