Sectors: Residential, Mixed Use

Client: Keetons

Scale: 30 apartments, 280m² retail, 2075m² storage

The proposed development is for two linked buildings, the demolition of the existing 3-storey offices on London Road, replacing it with a new build mixed use scheme (Retail and Residential) and the refurbishment and extension to an existing office building on Broom Close to create storage units and residential above.

The London Rd building consists of ground floor retail with 3 full floors of apartments and a set back 4th floor, delivering 17 apartments. The building is predominantly clad in brick with the corner expressed in turquoise terracotta panels and the setback roof has a saw tooth profile. Broom Close has the lower 3 floors as self-storage and the 2nd floor converted to residential with a new additional 3rd floor of apartments, which have a saw tooth profile echoing the London Rd building.
