Falcon Wharf, Lewes, East Sussex
Client: Jeary Developments
Scale: 7 houses
After planning was approved for the original design of this residential development of 7 homes Yelo Architects were commissioned to deliver the building regulations and construction stages of the project. The dwellings provide a range of flexible accommodation, with either 2 or 3 bedrooms and a range of living rooms. Each has its own private amenity space in the form of south-west facing balconies, and the central 3 units also enjoy hidden roof terraces. One of the dwellings has been designed to be wheelchair accessible and fully adaptable for any wheelchair users.
Externally a mix of parking spaces, covered bicycle and recycling storage create a functional and pleasant frontage to the development, and electric car charging docks have been added to cater for any electric vehicles.
Due to its location on the banks of the River Ouse this scheme incorporates extensive flood prevention measures and involved careful detailing to secure the properties in the unfortunate event of a flood.
