The scheme involves six new build town houses, 2 detached as part of phase 1, and 4 town houses to be built as phase 2.
The two phases of the development provide new housing which will enhance the area and improve the architectural and material qualities of the existing building whilst respecting and celebrating its contextual heritage.
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.
The scheme for the new build town houses on Rodick Street are three storey with integral garage and rear garden area.
The scheme for the new build detached houses on Rodick Street is two storey with living room opening out into a rear garden area at ground floor level.
A car port is provided at the side of each house providing off road parking from Rodick Street, this also provides access to the garden area.
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.
