Residential development of sixteen apartments - St Leonards On Sea, Hastings
The site is located in a prominent position with main road frontage and is nestled between two large Victorian semi detached properties. The new structure slots between the adjacent properties and fills the void. It aims to close the loose urban grid and create an active frontage. Although, a high density scheme of housing most properties enjoys its own private outdoor space, something which is generally overlooked for this type of housing. The proposed scheme relates to the character of the existing surrounding properties but is recognisably distinct providing a new vibrant addition to the area. The elevations are composed from a limited palette of high quality materials which make reference to the existing housing stock. A palette of white and sky blue render is proposed. Simple architectural detailing forms clean lines and provide a distinctive contemporary and vibrant character to the scheme.
