Features

Most apartments are two-level maisonettes with bedrooms facing into private courtyards and living accommodation facing outward; apartments ‘cross over and under’ each other, with circulation on every second level

This ‘cross over’ design allows apartments to feel more like houses, maximises dual aspect, minimises circulation and has proved popular with residents Apartments enjoy a high standard of spatial design: dual aspect, optimum orientation, generous provision of storage and private open space and shared roof gardens. A number of universally-accessible apartments are provided, flexibly designed for livework or residential use

Affordable apartments are distributed throughout for a better social mix

High insulation levels exceeding statutory requirements

Extensive use of prefabrication and off-site construction reduced carbon footprint and accelerated the construction programme
