One Hove Park, Old Shoreham Road, Hove
Client: Hyde Housing
One Hove Park was built on the site of a former language school that had been vacant since 2007. The site had two refused planning applications by another architectural practice. Yelo were brought on board to design a residential redevelopment and received planning consent at the first attempt.
Our proposal was highly site specific and focused towards providing a sensitive response to its setting. We worked with a landscape designer Nicholas Dexter to create a major feature of the scheme with both individual gardens and a stunning communal garden.
To maximise the sustainability of the build we adopted a fabric first design where we superinsulated the building to ensure very low energy usage. Photovoltaic panels were installed on the roof to power the communal areas and our landscape designer worked on recycling water and reusing the old bricks from the existing building.
