The proposal is designed to address the street scene as a whole and the varying relationships along the front facade by providing a ‘bookend’ to an existing 1960s building. To the rear, the elements have been stepped to minimise the impact on the neighbouring properties.
The architectural approach has been carefully considered, with the composition of elements designed to break up the elevation into a series of distinct components, which bring relief and layering to the elevations, creating hierarchy whilst facilitating the architectural space beyond.
