This project was to design a residential complex consisting of 68 new residential apartments varying between 1, 2 & 3 bedroom units. The provision contains a mixture of tenures comprising 34 shared ownership and 34 affordable rent units split between two cores. All shared ownership units received uplift on quality of finishes, and master bedrooms were all designed as en-suite.
The proposal utilises an existing brownfield industrial site close to the town centre, with this, we engaged with the local community and considered their feedback into the developing design.
The project was split into two phases, the first being to provide commercial ‘business incubation’ space, followed by the residential element in phase two. The residential phase is conditional on the uptake of the commercial units.
