Re-interpreting the Arts and Crafts Gable
A BIT MORE DETAIL
The scheme reinterprets the long swept eaves of the Arts and Crafts style into a double-height eaves to ridge design, incorporating large openable frameless windows and a timber shingle facade as a reference to the red-orange hues of the brick found locally. The ground floor hosts two flats, with two-storey maisonettes occupying the upper floors. The scheme is fully integrated with plan/structural functionality, urban design and facade coordinated as one piece.
The scheme integrates itself with the adjacent Court Parade, transforming an existing roof space into a communal garden, and extending the first-floor deck access to ensure that the scheme integrates into the existing typology of the maisonette.
