This £11m project is for the construction of a new 7-storey building consisting of 31 residential units (9x1bed, 14x2bed, 8x3bed) and 1,755sqm of B1 commercial space. This scheme has developed through a rigorous design approach, responding to the historical roots of past industrial presence in the area, whilst offering a range of modern, exciting residences above an industrial base.
A black mesh façade acts as a contemporary addition to the envelope of the building; it is applied as an extra layer to provide a semi-permeable privacy barrier between the street and residential units above. The colour ties in with the detail elements on the lower floors. Sliding panels and shutters provide a level of user control over the façade.
