Scale: 2 houses
Status: In planning
This scheme involves the erection of two 3 bedroom houses on a site currently occupied by a vacant single storey building. The three storey houses will sit at a lower level than the immediate surrounding properties whilst taking design cues from nearby buildings to fit within the street scene.
Both dwellings will offer a large open plan living space on the first floor where a greater amount of natural light can enter compared to the ground floor. Each house will have two bedrooms on the ground floor, one of which will lead out to a private courtyard, and a shared WC. The courtyards will provide amenity space within an urban plot and space to store two bicycles per household.
The ground floors have also been designed so that they can be adapted to be fully wheelchair accessible if needed, with a shower room to meet the guidelines of M4(2), a double bedroom and possibility of moving the kitchen space from the first floor to the ground floor in place of the second bedroom.
