Hampshire-based Re-Format has won planning for three new townhouses in Winchester
The scheme of three 225m² houses sits on a sloping site just outside the St Giles Hill conservation area of Winchester.
The homes are inset into the slope of the hill, carving 10m from the hillside and giving views out across the city.
The architect’s view
This bold design creates a series of tiered frames that capture panoramic views towards the downland beyond the city.Stepping the accommodation as the building height increases has not only created three distinct terraces that provide ample amenity spaces, but further reduces the visual mass of the proposed dwellings.
