The redevelopment of a single storey warehouse unit on a tight brownfield site in the Town Centre posed many challenges both in terms of planning and construction for these flats.
A small street frontage led onto a deep site opening up to fantastic views over open countryside to the rear. Access was limited and the surrounding context was varied both in scale and appearance. Proposals developed a high-density apartments scheme over two blocks with a pedestrian link to the main street and vehicular access to the rear.
Aesthetically the scheme took reference from the surrounding area and developed a contemporary scheme to the rear, with a more traditional, natural stone frontage to the street.
