This project involved the provision of 9 no. Local Authority houses for an edge of village site. The breakdown of units comprises 1 no. 5 bed 2 storey house, 4 no. 3 bed 2 storey houses and 4 no. 2 bed single storey houses. A simple and cost effective site strategy was adopted with the houses aligned on each side of a central communal green space.
A semi-public area is provided at the front of the single storey units with private rear gardens backing onto the existing mature site boundaries to the rear.
The façade materials are selected for their low maintenance properties. Facades generally have a dash finish with select areas in brick panels. Low walls in local stonework and galvanised railings define parking and public areas.
In collaboration with Michael Sweeney Architect.
