MJP wins green light for Jersey quarry scheme

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] MJP Architects and Axis Mason Architects have been given the go-ahead for this 196-flat development on the site of a former quarry in St Helier, Jersey

The mixed-use Westmount Quarryscheme for developer Dandara also features 16 sheltered apartments, a 60-room nursing home and a nursery. The 50m-high quarry rockface will be stabilised and ‘framed’ between the buildings.

Duncan McKinnon, Housing Director for MJP Architects said: ‘The form of this development was generated in response to it’s dramatic site.

‘The central buildings rise in a series of steps in front of the quarry cliff face, creating landscaped terraces and making a gradual transition from the public realm up to a skyline marked by emphatic cantilevering roofs. The flanks are a series of angled walls with windows oriented towards the view of St Aubin’s Bay.’
