RGP (transport planning and infrastructure design), Acoustic Associates (acoustic survey)
We worked with two sets of clients to provide them with a pair of new dwellings to replace their existing homes.
The key aspect of the project was to ensure a view of the sea from the properties; at present, they only have a view from the attic space and wanted to maximise this.
Our brief was to create lifelong homes, where they can live with flexibility for the future as they get older.
We developed the concepts and final design with the clients. Initially, we drew a number of sketch schemes to start the process until we hit on the shape which gave a strong modern look with a few nods to a nautical theme Having submitted it to Planning in early 2018, throughout the planning process we negotiated with the planners and neighbours to secure a positive decision in October 2018.
Due to the position of the site (it being on the main seafront road), we had to develop the design with RGP traffic consultants and Acoustic Associates; seeking their input to ensure safe parking and access, and incorporating noise mitigation strategies to ensure the buildings will provide quiet sleeping accommodation.
We are now looking at the build system and demolition, ready to start on site in 2019.
