PROJECTS / Housing
The design for this 72-unit housing scheme embraces the existing landscape and responds to neighbouring residential areas to create a strong sense of place and community for future residents.
A family of lightweight pavilions, ‘float’ over a ground floor stone plinth. At ground floor, gabion walls create a sturdy base that helps bed the scheme into the landscape. Cedar shingle cladding reflects the ecological setting and the irregular texture compliments the non-uniform arrangement of windows.
The building interiors include large open plan living/dining areas, balconies and designated cycle storage, and the adaptable layouts will accommodate the changing needs of family life.
