This project was begun under another practice. When Squire and Partners came on board, the practice was faced with the task of adapting a scheme with an existing planning consent - on which construction was about to begin.
A total of 85 flats, including a number of maisonettes, is provided in two blocks. The budget was far from extravagant, so simple and durable materials, render and engineering brick along with metal and timber screening, are used. On the southfacing elevation - facing an area of car parking - glazed panels, which are dramatically lit by night, provide an element of visual interest. The spacious top-floor apartments are clearly expressed as glazed pavilions.
