This 3-storey residential development sits on the site of a former garage, amongst a mix of residential properties including Victorian bungalows, Georgian terrace and 1960’s semi-detached dwellings. The scheme a brick clad 3 storey terrace of eight, four-bedrooms family homes. The front façade is split by vertical strips of full-height glazing separating the houses which incudes the main front entrance.
Each house is formed around an ‘L-shaped’ brick wall, each one overlapping the next, wrapping and protecting the inhabitants and orientating them towards the rear terrace and garden. The stepped rear also allows for access to private balconies from both the first and second floor bedrooms creating additional amenity space for the occupants.
The second storey contrasts with the brick façade below and is stepped back to echo the sloping roofs of the neighbouring houses. The contrasting but complimentary material for the second storey is vertical metal cladding finished in a matte pearl beige/grey colour.
