Planning permission granted for Crichel Point
hcl architects is pleased to announce that Crichel Point has been granted planning permission!
hcl architects has a long history in the Poole area due to our founder and Chairman, Richard Horden, who grew up in the Branksome Park neighbourhood. Two of Richard’s most celebrated works are located in Poole: ‘Wildwood’, built for his parents in 1972 and gained listed building status in 2007; and ‘Evening Hill House’, his own home which was voted Building of the Year for 2002.
Our proposal closely follows Richard’s design ethos of considering both nature and landscape in relation to architecture and engineering. Strong horizontality and flow of space, the play of light and transparency were all critical to his work.
This new residential dwelling will be a two-storey home with an area of approximately 350m2. The arrangement of the house will prove very suitable for the family over time; with a vision to the future, the planned guest bedroom located on the ground floor is a near mirror of the master bedroom on the first floor. Along with the transparent glass and glazed sliders that make the garden virtually part of the house, this home has the facility of maintenance and spatial layout to be enjoyed for many years to come.
