This project involves the re-development of an existing light industrial/ retail warehouse into 8 family homes. The design concept was to create eight new dwellings as two terraced rows. To allow for adequate parking on this tight site, the houses are conceived as ‘upside-down’ houses with the main living spaces at first floor level. This creates generous garden decks above the parking level.
Material choices and vocabulary of detail will take cognisance of surrounding styles whilst developing a contemporary language of its own.
The surrounding terraced houses generally have simple, flat elevations, with some decoration and relief at the main entrance doors. The proposals seek to reflect this format in a contemporary manner. Relief brickwork in a ‘speckled’ pattern is used to highlight main entrance doors. This detail is also used to the rears of the houses to break up the rear elevations, provide interest and give an element of verticality to the otherwise mainly horizontal elevations.
