This is a Residential redevelopment of nine apartments, based on a suburban high density, housing model. The proposal maximises the potential of the site through the introduction of a full basement, as well as by mixing duplex and lateral apartments over four floors.
The duplex form allows the basement to be used for bedrooms, linked to living accommodation on the level above. Private gardens and balconies ensure all the apartments have appropriate external amenity space. Planting to the front and rear of the properties contribute to the Green Infrastructure of the surrounding neighbourhood.
Careful thought has been given to the building typology; the design reflects the local context and sits comfortably within the street scene, re-inventing the local residential building stock. Currently the site is used as a carpet warehouse, and therefore, the application also encompasses a partial change of use from B8 (storage and distribution) to C3 (dwelling).
