The Solution / Outcome

Situated next to a heritage listed cottage, it was important that this new development blended in well with existing surroundings while considering the future context of a street so close to the town centre. With contemporary metal cladding and other complementary, durable materials, the design balanced existing site constraints such the neighbouring heritage item and existing trees, in order to minimise the impact on the local environment.

A great, all-round result was achieved, especially for the occupants as well as our client, the housing provider. This completed development makes an incremental contribution to address the dire affordable housing shortage in our region.
