The site is located within an area of mixed use, including residential, light industrial, retail and leisure. The site currently houses a selection of B1 use warehouses and offices. It is immediately adjacent to Canada Street which lies to the West, Harmsworth Quays Printing Works is to the East, Alfred Salter Primary School is to the North and to the South is another site which is currently being considered for redevelopment by others.
Massing and Urban form
The massing of the redevelopment is a response to the issues identified in the current site environment. The massing of the redevelopment is highest against the print works and gradually reduces to the perimeter at the school and Canada Street. The housing blocks gently reduce in height, giving an attractive terraced form to the overall massing.
The form of the housing units are interlaced creating
a coherent layout by introducing a series
The Landscape Proposal
The design has been developed which comprises new residential units grouped around beautifully landscaped courtyards. The courtyards are green spaces with grass, fl ower beds, large deciduous trees and water pools that articulate the spaces, provide amenity, opportunity for activity, rest and repose within the urban framework. The courtyards create a site which is permeable and encourages pedestrian movement through the site rather than at its edges.
Rainwater for landscape irrigation will be collected from the roofs and stored beneath the courtyards. The recycled water will ensure that the courtyards remain green all year round.
