Cow Lane Housing, Watford
Ian Blake and Sutton Griffin Architects’ proposals were to transform the former Sun Chemical factory site into a residential led mixed-use redevelopment. The 2 hectare scheme accommodates 212 new homes, a 90 bed care home, a crèche and a small office suite – set around open amenity spaces and a pocket park.
The plans submitted to Hertfordshire Council combine contemporary urban design with public realm integration and sustainability. The residential accommodation was designed to comply with Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 with the commercial properties achieving BREEAM excellent.
