Cheltenham Architects’ Studio bags planning for housing scheme

  • Comment

Cheltenham Architects’ Studio has won planning permission for a contentious residential project in Oakley, Cheltenham

The development, situated on a corner site, features a trio of three bedroom ‘townhouses’ and a one-bedroom ‘coach house’.

A spokesperson for the practice claimed the project aimed to ‘combine modern and traditional materials to echo the scale, proportion and rhythm of the vernacular whilst being unashamedly modern.’  

They added: ‘The aspiration is to produce a high quality dwelling for modern living albeit on a very constrained site. The architecture blends with the street scene while “celebrating the corner” in this prominent location.’

Each unit has an open-air courtyard garden which is an extension of the open plan living space. 

The Cheltenham Civic Society filed several complaints relating to the proposal. In a submission to the council, the society said: ‘We are not happy with the overall design and its impact on the street scene.

‘Some details seem ill thought out and the tower feature very contrived.’
