HoughtonBudd Architects

Appointed at detailed planning we have been working with a developer to produce a scheme for 36 high value private apartments which are to be set within a large listed garden.

Our response to the brief has been to devise 4 distinct blocks with the intention of creating large villa like structures which are then internally configured as required to create generous apartments.

Each block is orientated around a generous stair which is intended to encourage interaction between residents with an extended hall allowing the more private activities to be set behind lobbies, creating a sense of discretion and generosity within a pre-determined envelope.

A palette of dressed regional sandstone, full height glazing and sober internal finishes reinforces the villa typology and is intended to set the project apart from typical developer led housing in the region.
