This scheme creates 21 apartments for post graduate students in a distinctive new corner building and replaces a row of unremarkable shops. At ground floor, three retail units are created with a generous entrance to the apartments set back on the side street.
Blocks of multi coloured brick give the body and base of the building a strong character, whilst the corner is marked with a cantilevered wing in white render and zinc. A communal green roof garden is sited with stunning views.
The apartments are well sized with a mix of two and three bedrooms. Sited on a tram route with local facilities within walking distance, this is an intense, sustainable use for a brownfield site
Full planning approval was granted.
