RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence 2019

Metis Homes is very proud to report that our development at Kents Orchard in the Hampshire village of Houghton has been nominated and shortlisted for a national RTPI award for Excellence in Planning for a Small Development of New Homes.

The Metis team worked closely with Masser Architects and Mapledean Projects to design and deliver this development, which responds positively to its rural setting, the key heritage assets and history of the village. It includes the re-introduction of an orchard of trees at its frontage, after which the site was originally named, beneath which sits a drainage field serving the new homes.

This high quality bespoke development is the product of a comprehensive exercise in consultation and collaboration between Metis Homes, Test Valley Borough Council and all key stakeholders. This process has resulted in a courtyard development of six new homes in a contemporary rural style, set within a carefully considered hard and soft landscape framework which both provides an attractive sylvan setting to the development and is functional in softening the built form and its associated infrastructure.
