13 no. 1 and 2 Bedroom Apartments on tight brownfield site, within Conservation Area and Town Centre, Preston, Lancashire
Procurement: JCT 98 W/O Quantities
Contract Value: c. £1.2m
RIBA Stages: C - K
The redevelopment of a single storey warehouse unit on a tight brownfield site posed many challenges both in terms of planning and construction.
A small street frontage led onto a deep site opening up to fantastic views over open countryside to the rear. Access was limited and the surrounding context was varied both in scale and appearance. Proposals developed a high density scheme over two blocks with a pedestrian link to the main street and vehicular access to the rear.
Aesthetically the scheme took reference from the surrounding area and developed a contemporary scheme to the rear, with a more traditional, natural stone frontage to the street.
NB: Works on project undertaken, as Project Architect, when employee for another architectural practice. Please contact us for more information.
