Green Urban Oasis: 15 homes above shops re-imagined
Flats above shops re-imagined.
The client initially came to us with a requirement for 3-4 units above a major national retailer in place. During feasibility we were able to achieve 15, an increase of the GDV by a factor of 4.
The proposal is for the demolition of upper floors and retention of retail units in situ, and addition of 15 new residential units above and to the rear, creating an unique and calming refuge from the busy central urban area.
The Wind Tower is a new sound landmark: a device that on one level focuses and concentrates people’s senses and on the other hand amplifies the climatic (windy) nature of the site. The intervention forces people to the edge – to make a commitment.
Extensive refurbishment comprising of a split section to the rear. This sectional arrangement was utilised to develop a concept of a geological strata linking all spaces to the rear with its uniform and consistent finish. The strata forms a raised terrace, a kitchen, floor, wall and ceiling and a metal clad central stair element pierces through forming circulation between the levels and spaces.
