Lucas Hickman Smith have been appointed to design the second phase of Hus46 – Abel Homes’ new development at Watton. The first phase was designed by our Matt Wood in collaboration with David Futter Associates before Matt joined us back in 2010. The second phase of the project comprises 28 two, three and four-bedroomed houses for sale and 5 affordable single-storey homes.
In a characteristically bold move, Abel Homes have opted to base the look of the new homes on the highly successful Hus22 project in Drayton, also designed by Matt Wood while a director at Conran&Partners, in collaboration with Lucas Hickman Smith. As Tony Abel explains in the EDP this week:
‘We wanted these new homes to stand out from other homes which are being built in the town, both in terms of their look and their livability and in particular their sustainability and energy-efficiency. I was born in this town and I want to be able to look back and be proud of what we have achieved here.’
A planning application for Phase 2 will be submitted in April, with construction due to start in the Autumn.
