Framing affordable housing
The site is located adjacent to the Amen Corner development, a scheme also designed by Alan Camp Architects. The development consists of forty six one, two and three bedroom flats and maisonettes for affordable rental.
The design of the scheme has been carried out to reflect the differences in scale of the neighbouring properties. This has been achieved by a ‘stepped’ approach to its massing from five storeys at the street elevation, stepping down to two storeys adjoining the residential properties to the rear of the site, creating a series of communal roof terraces for the residents. A verticality has been created to the elevations through white render screens framing the balconies which stand proud of the grey-facing brickwork and thermowood cladding.
The development has been constructed from a prefabricated timber frame cassette system (MMC) and incorporated individual dwelling air source heat pumps.
