This development of three two storey wheelchair standard houses located on land containing garages was challenged by the existence of two sewers crossing the land. This informed the siting of the new block. Additional challenges were maintaining the necessary privacy distance from existing adjacent dwellings.
Internally, the scheme is thoughtfully laid out with circulation minimised, provision of a lift and generous storage space including for wheelchairs. The scale, massing and choice of materials for the elevational treatment are considered with render and timber cladding providing contrast to the brickwork.
TOCA worked with the Clients as well as John Thompson and Partners to ensure that the design fully met the end-user and statutory requirements. As project managers TOCA oversaw the procurement process, appointment of the contractor and managed the contract through to completion of the works.
