Residential Development in Maidstone Conservation Area, Kent
The Grain Store, Gabriel's Hill, Maidstone, Kent is a development of 22 apartments within a Conservation Area in Kent's county town. An existing former grain store most recently used as a nightclub will be replaced with a 5 storey new building with the appearance of a converted warehouse. LHLA was appointed to undertake the Landscape Design and support the planning application. LHLA worked with Alan Glover Architect. The landscape design included a green roof, sustainable drainage with water harvesting, permeable paving and inter-connected rain gardens to reduce water run-off, off-set carbon emissions and provide green space in an inner city area where greenery is in short supply. Full planning approval.
