Residential development of nine detached houses - Doncaster, South Yorkshire
The site is located in a prominent position, with road frontage to three sides of the site, with a former public house occupying a central position on the site. The new structures sit along the North, South and Western boundary to provide an active frontage, these positions aim to close the loose urban grid formed by the existing public house on the site. To the North and South boundaries a 'saw-tooth' building line has been created to enhance and contrast with the surrounding area along with following the natural taper of these boundaries. The western boundary has a more rigid building line which has been created to follow the line of the boundary whilst allowing for a street scene of impact. 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. The lower section of the properties are to be clad in 'off white' colour through render which supports an upper section of buff coloured brickwork. Focal points to corner positions have been created with contrasting charcoal render proposed, with various scatterings of this present else where in the proposals. Simple architectural detailing forms clean lines and provide a distinctive contemporary and vibrant character to the scheme.
