Client: Marden Homes Limited

This complex, two stage project involved the redevelopment of a brownfield site whilst in phase 1 retaining an operational ambulance station. Phase two required the provision of a new ambulance station on a separate site allowing the completion of the residential element.

The scheme takes the form of a tight linear mews terminated by apartment buildings. The buildings have a limited palette of materials with a strong sense of place, way marked by glazed lanterns in key locations.
