79 Mixed tenure homes on former NHS site


We were approached by Family Mosaic to improve an existing outline planning consent for 50 dwellings.Through our design development and discussions with the Council we have proposed a mixed tenure scheme of 79 dwellings. The scheme makes full advantage of the site overlooking a park and creating a central amenity space. The massing of the development is staggered to respond to the heights of the neighbouring dwellings.


The southern block comprises the social rent and disabled units. The scheme features an open central atrium and landscaped gardens with communal vegetable patches.


A simple material palate of two colours of brick, the darker brick articulates the ground floor or bookends of main flat blocks. Brown metal panels have been used to accentuate openings or to provide feature balconies.
