The townhouses take on a more traditional style, appearing as simple brick forms, broken up with contemporary, linear insertions of glass and metal. The neutral palette of brick, metal and render ties in with the existing streetscape, whilst the simplicity of the forms and crisp architectural detailing, results in a refined yet understated contemporary piece of architecture which doesn’t dominate its context.
The apartments follow a more contemporary approach, with a bolder material palette and increased articulation. A curved edge to the northern boundary softens the approach from the street, and opens up views to the overall development on approach from High Street. Whilst the overall design approach is varied, all dwellings share common design elements of symmetry, strong rectilinear forms, and simple volumes. The use of verticality in both the architecture and materiality, adds further continuity to the overall development. To integrate further, a high quality and extensive landscaping scheme is proposed throughout, further strengthening the relationship between the development and the existing streetscape.
