This main constraint for this scheme was the tight site sat between the railway line and main road. This long this configuration and abutment to the railway line required a creative response for amenity space.
The proposal was an ‘upside down’ house which included the provision of a first floor terrace space spilling off the main living area. The stepped facade and angular roof line allows for a contemporary proposal which responds to the wider streetscape and allows for interesting double height first floor living spaces which maximises light and volume.
The materiality response was to create a monolithic feel for the units with an earthy palette which would allow for the deep reveals to be clearly expressed within the simple composition.
