The Lickey Hills in Rednal, Birmingham is one of the region’s oldest parks, renowned for its woodlands, greenery and views. We were engaged by Chase Homes to design a residential project which required a sensitive approach for housing to suit its surroundings and context.

The project comprised a range of accommodation from small apartments to large detached houses, all set within an existing mature woodland setting, The dwellings were all designed to accompany this setting and are as such individual to their context. They reflect local design influences and characteristics and since completion, this scheme has won regional and national awards for sensitive building in the environment and is also highlighted in the CABE publication ‘By Design’ as an example of good design.
