Fox Covert Townhouses

A development of 8 timber-framed townhouses on a confined, sloping site with a number of Planning constraints. Site is bordered on 3 sides by residential development and at the rear by a hotel at a higher level. These dictated one of the main Planning constraints which imposed restriction to the height in relation to the neighbours.

Houses are set at 4 different levels to deal with the cross fall on the site. Facades facing into the central court have steeply pitched gables defining each house. Elevations are articulated with timber balconies and timber cladding at high level.
