Holme Lacy Pound Farm Courtyard Planning Residential

Pound Farm Planning

Hewitt Studios have recently secured detailed planning permission for a number of residential plots and a relocated farm for Herefordshire and Ludlow College at Holme Lacy.

 

The residential sites will provide a sustainable solution to local housing need, whilst preserving and reinvigorating the site’s heritage assets, including several listed farm buildings.

 

The farm will create a more flexible working agricultural facility, better suited to the College’s educational focus.

Weston Super Mare Cycling Activities Hub Night Pier

Council Back Cycle Centre

North Somerset Council’s executive members recently backed our designs for a new cycle hub after receiving confirmation that the Department for Transport will provide £1.25m towards sustainable transport initiatives in the region.

We have designed a sustainable destination for visitors and locals along the coastal cycling route from Brean Down to Portishead. The scheme forms part of ongoing improvements being made to the cycle network in the South West and seeks to act as a catalyst to promote year-round use of the infrastructure and to attract additional funding.

EV Charging Hub Video

We have just completed a short promotional video describing our K:Port EV charging hub – a project jointly developed by Hewitt Studios and Charge Point Services Ltd to offer attractive, safe and sustainable EV charging with integrated cafe / education space.

It incorporates the latest generation rapid chargers (capable of charging an EV in 20-40 minutes) along with associated photovoltaic power generation and battery power storage, water harvesting and sustainable drainage, integrated low-power services and lighting, elements of landscape and planting, and a future-proof laminated timber structure.

Our sustainable design derives from the Japanese notion of Komorebi; the dappled light which occurs when sunlight shines through the leaves of a tree. The essence of the tree is apparent throughout the design, from the form of the canopy itself and the timbers which make up its structure, to the collection and use of rainwater and sunlight – this is photosynthetic architecture!
