This project arose from the rationalisation of 3 residential high-rise blocks. 1x13 storey block was retained and refurbished including common areas, and the provision of a new communal lounge at ground level. 2 blocks were demolished and a 2-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.
