The client who is a local property developer has been in ownership of the existing building, which has been derelict for many years. The buildings previous use was light industrial on a residential street and is in need of development as the property has become damaged.
The clients brief was to bring life back to the building by adding retail at the ground floor and maximising the number of apartments in the space with the opportunity to extend part of the upper floors.
Design Studio Architects have proposed a architectural style for the building that has a modern key facade with the use of white render, cedar boarding and clad in green copper.
The scheme will provide 8 residential units and a generous retail unit on the ground floor.
