The site is located on a traditional residential street sandwiched between grand, three storey Edwardian semi-detached houses and a day nursery, with playing fields to the rear. The site has never been developed and has only been used briefly as allotments, so the building plugs the visual gap in the street scene.
The proposals create 1 x five-bedroom house and 3 x two-bedroom flats, the mix being dictated by Planning Policy. Extensive local consultation was undertaken which resulted in the development having the appearance to the street of a pair of semi-detached houses, with a scale and form appearing as a continuation of the existing houses.
The building is three storeys tall with the upper storey contained within the roof space. The footprint follows the existing building line of the houses, with bay windows and gable roofs continuing the strong existing rhythm.
The materials are primarily brick with render to the bays and zinc to the roof. Detailing is simple, with recessed and projecting brickwork to create areas of highlight and shadow.
