Lee Boyd can offer architectural and masterplanning services in relation to residential accommodation, whether in the realm of social, private or small scale domestic housing.
For every project we apply our knowledge and expertise in the field to create attractive and comfortable dwellings that are site specific and highly sustainable, where possible exceeding the current environmental standards. The practice is very familiar with the increasing challenges facing the housing sector and has a reputation for maximising the benefits of difficult urban sites that require careful attention to satisfy the ever changing technical standards and meet developer demands for comfortable affordable homes.
At the more bespoke end of the market, Lee Boyd has many smaller scale private commissions where our attention to detail can make a significant difference to domestic clients with tight budgets, lifestyle pressures and restricted sites.
We don’t all have the luxury of being able to move up the property ladder or find a property that immediately ticks all the boxes.
Therefore it is necessary to be innovative with what you have existing or can afford, to cope with the demands of family expansion the need to modernise and improve efficiency or the aspiration for your home to reflect your lifestyle or character.
Lee Boyd has considerable experience maximising the potential of smaller scale domestic projects, where clients often have limited budgets and need innovative ideas to solve tricky problems.
Whether it is an attic conversion, refurbishment of a listed cottage or a one off new house, we can provide a bespoke and hands on service to suit the aspirations and budget of any client and will help steer them through the often difficult process of a building project, including clear direction on an appropriate sustainable agenda.
Lee Boyd has a reputation for getting the most out of difficult sites and many of our housing projects for developers provide testimony to this claim.
Projects such as Greyfriars, the former Dental School and Bonaly are conversions of buildings not formerly domestic, all in sensitive settings and with considerable challenges in terms of layout and servicing.
Our new build project in Bathgate is a typical example of the pressing need to maximise yield on a difficult site, whilst at the same time satisfying local residents and planners concerned about privacy and design quality.
In the ever changing landscape of sustainability and technical standards, Lee Boyd can still find affordable and innovative solutions for private residential development, whether flats or houses, and balance the viability with consideration of design and good amenity.
Lee Boyd has worked with Housing Associations for the last 15 years and has in depth experience delivering a wide variety of affordable housing projects within the strict and every changing sustainability standards and others such as Varying Needs, Secure by Design and Eco Homes.
We have worked on projects that contribute to wider regeneration and community support, often incorporating a proportion of special needs and our portfolio of completed projects includes: tenemental infill, mews, terraced housing, flats and refurbishment.
