Design

This first phase of the development provides 4 new houses on Quarry Street which will enhance the area and improve the architectural and material qualities of the local area.

The scheme also involves the refurbishment of building numbers 55 and 57 on Quarry Street, utilising the existing sandstone building.

Location

This exclusive development is located in the affluent and very sought-after village of Woolton, a suburb of the city of Liverpool.

As the proposal is in the much coveted Woolton Conservation area, heavy consideration has been made by the designers to the character of the proposals within its historical setting, by acknowledging the need to perserve existing structures and enhancing the area by using materials which tie into their historic setting in a modern way.

Elevations & Layout

The Quarry Street town houses are 4 storey in design, with 3 storey living accomodation, and an undercroft parking solution to all houses where garage and utility space is accessed on the lower ground floor.  Additional outdoor space is in the form of a balcony from the main lounge.

Secure vehicular access is via an electric door on Rodick Street, which also provides additional access to a communal area and individual gardens.

The scheme for the existing pub building on the corner of Quarry Street and Rodick Street is to preserve the existing structure and enhance it by creating a suitable and sustainable development.

Site Plan

The Quarry street and Rodick street elevations define the main pedestrian and vehicular edges of the site. Quarry street provides a route in and out of Woolton village.

Rodick street gives access to residential areas. There are a number of driveways and private car parks accessed on Rodick street whilst Quarry street feeds a number of minor roads and cul de sac’s.

Consideration has also been given to the position of the sun throughout the day in order to maximise natural sunlight into the properties.
