Both pre & post planning Dan has worked closely with the team in the Bristol office to design and communicate an effective solution to Reading’s desire for more affordable housing in the form of an infill estate regeneration.
This feasibility study was presented to the client after they decided to develop the aging, flood-prone site. Dan produced 2D diagrams to explain the scheme and a 3D massing model to bring it to life.
This detailed capacity study built on work completed by HTA in 2016. The new, reduced site area has potential to be the focus of a sensitive yet dense new development in the heart of Brixton, Dan once again took charge of the 3D modelling and 2D diagrams.
