HPA has decades of experience in the housing sector, specialising in everything from bespoke luxury homes to high quality affordable housing and care projects.
Our clients include private homeowners, housing developers, landowners, and housing associations.
Bespoke and luxury home design
HPA has worked on a number of award-winning luxury homes projects and other commissions to create bespoke private homes.
Due to our specialist planning knowledge and conservation expertise, we’ve been able to gain planning consent for new-build homes in rural areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), as well as sympathetic extensions to existing listed-buildings and farmhouses.
Our projects include, Squire House, a timber-framed, zero-carbon home in the Forest of Bowland, which was shortlisted for a RIBA Award, and Burrow Farm in Lancashire which saw us significantly extend a 19th century farmhouse.
The practice has an impressive track record of working with both luxury and high-volume housebuilders on development projects across the UK.
We offer detailed design and planning services, from development of house-types and site master planning, to planning approval and project management.
We also work with landowners looking to develop houses on their land, guiding them through the planning and development process.
Affordable housing design
HPA also has extensive knowledge of working with registered providers and housing associations to bring forward high-quality affordable housing projects.
We are often engaged to provide innovative solutions to develop on difficult sites, for example in conservation areas and on green-belt land.
We can help housing providers meet the challenge of developing in rural areas where the demand for new affordable housing is great, but where protection of the countryside is also paramount.
Care and assisted living
Our team of architects have built up a wealth of knowledge on designing homes for older people and those requiring specialist support.
Our portfolio of projects includes extra care, retirement developments, care homes and specialist developments for people with dementia.
