This project arose from the rationalisation of three residential high-rise blocks.  Thirteen storey block was retained and refurbished including common areas, and the provision of a new communal lounge at ground level.  Two blocks were demolished and a two storey housing scheme built in its place.

The new housing is timber-framed and highly insulated, achieving a high standard of energy performance.  The design was carried out through a comprehensive consultation process involving a largely Asian group of residents, reflecting their cultural and religious needs and aspirations through the design.  The project was procured through project partnering and was selected as a demonstration project by the Housing Forum.
