PiP's proposal was to demolish a 1950’s detached dwelling which had fallen in to disrepair and was of poor and inefficient construction to enable the erection of four five-bed-roomed dwellings with off street parking, including landscaping and access.
Our design for Park View demonstrates our ability to match creative form to practical function in our building schemes.
Given the constraints of the site, we minimised the circulation space by providing split level access to each floor accessed off a glazed stairwell. Each floor is separated via a glazed screen which allows natural daylight to flood through the dwelling and light the circulation areas on the north side of the building.
The split level allowed each floor plate to take advantage of the southerly aspect whilst lighting the north side of the building, optimising solar gain and providing attractive views across the park to the rear. By providing the split level it also ensured that adequate accommodation could be provided to cater for a five-bedroom family dwelling whilst respecting the constraints of the conservation area in which it lies.
Living areas are proposed across each floor plate providing flexibility to the occupants and allowing them to move around the building depending on circumstances. This is reinforced by a terrace area to each floor access off living areas. The lower ground floor provides intimacy and seclusion if privacy is desired whilst upper floors provide attractive views across Cambridge.
