The project seeks to build upon the quality and character of the best examples of the existing buildings within the neighbouring context. Simple and appropriate design, form and massing, well selected materials and finishes, together with a considered positioning of the accommodation within the plot and relative to the streetscape ensures the development reflects the best aspects and the character of the conservation area.

Well positioned buildings addressing the streets ensure large landscaped private gardens and maximum sun and daylight for both new and existing properties.
