This residential development consisted of 124 no apartments comprising of 48 no. 1 bed apartments and 76 no. 2 bed apartments including an internal communal area.
The building itself contained the apartments which were arranged in two blocks, surrounded by new open space. The first block was 6 stories, and the second block was 5 stories over undercroft car parking half submerged in the rising landscape at the end of the site, which rised approximately 3m across the site extent.
The building incorporated quality materials to achieve a sustainable social letting building of apartments which all have access to communal amenity spaces, landscaped courtyards as well as individual private balconies.
The main building frame was of concrete – insitu and precast panelling which was clad predominantly in selected brick with stone elements to the southern end of the building. Selected windows and balcony elements to elevations with set back at the top floor to provide terrace areas.
Landscaped public amenity areas wraps around the building and was been carefully designed to provide a space to suit all age groups and provides ‘pockets’ of amenity and a child’s play area that minimised the impact of the scheme for existing local residents.
