Project Description :

This mixed use development combines private residential units and a nursing home facility on a large brownfield site within the desirable area of Pontcanna. The site is within a Conservation Area and as such brought many challenges to the design of the scheme involving careful consideration of listed buildings and other buildings of architectural merit.

 

The residential element contains a mixture of apartments and town houses whose design adopts a contextual but contemporary approach to the articulation of the elevations and the choice of materials that inform the language of the architecture

 

The Masterplan consciously integrated existing historic buildings into the fabric of the development. The relationship between new and old has been addressed in a manner that allows the diverse architectural statement to express themselves in contrast but in a complimentary manner.
