Architecture - Housing
"This proposed housing development in West Lancashire for a private developer comprists of mainly family houses with a small proportion of one and two-bed apartments."
In developing the initial designs for the housing layout, the intention was to create a new and interesting place to live whilst retaining close associations with the surrounding existing housing streets through the evocation of a similar density, pattern, and scale of the existing housing stock. The design was arrived at by a rigorous development process which considered the merits of different solutions - each taking account of street patterns, density, access, permeability, amenity space, and interfaces with adjacent sites.
The design and scale of the housing was determined by objective considerations of typical house types in the surrounding areas, and recent developments in modern housing. Particular effort was made to find an integration of interesting modern architectural with traditional housing accommodation.
