Project Description :

This development involved the renovation of an existing locally listed Victorian property and a new build extension to the rear providing 1No one bed apartment and 19No two bed apartments.

Cathedral Road is in a Conservation area, the area being characterised by large stone built
Victorian dwellings. The design reflects a progressive dialogue with the Local Planning Authority and represent a distillation of issues raised during the pre-planning consultation.

The building facades provide an appropriate balance between a contemporary approach to the new build extension, using traditional materials in a manner that is deferential in scale to the existing house. The limited number of materials (brickwork, render and zinc cladding) employed in the proposals respect the mute colour hues of the existing house. Nevertheless, white render is used in accent areas in deliberate contrast and invigorate the elevations.
